My husband isn’t a sweets person – and it drives me crazy. An admitted chocoholic, I usually avoid keeping cookies and desserts around our apartment because, inevitably, I’m the only one who eats them (all). There are a few exceptions, thankfully, and one of them is cookies from Tate’s Bake Shop. Ever since we were introduced to the bakery on a trip out to visit friends in the Hamptons, he can’t get enough. They’re crispy, crunchy, slightly salty and irresistible.
Fortunately, you don’t need to have a place in Southampton (or nice friends out there) to enjoy Tate’s goodies. The familiar green-and-white packages are sold in gourmet stores, and Tate’s Bake Shop has finally revealed some of baker Kathleen King’s secrets in a new cookbook. Now I can bake cookies I know I won’t have to devour all by myself. Thank you, Kathleen!
The cookbook isn’t limited to cookies – it covers everything from scones and muffins to decadent cakes. Impress the sweet-tooths (or even sweets-haters) in your life with one of Tate’s recipes:
