I had the pleasure of sampling some amazingly tasty treats from Tate’s Bake Shop a couple of weeks back. Located in Long Island, the bakery’s cookies have received recognition from Consumer Reports as the #1 Chocolate Chip Cookie. Tate’s Bake Shop also has a gluten-free line and just expanded their facility at their Southampton bake shop.
More about Tate’s Bake Shop:
Kathleen King, founder and owner of Tate’s Bake Shop, began baking when she was just eleven years old, selling small batches of her crisp, buttery chocolate chip cookies off of a fold-out card table on North Sea Farm, her parents’ Long Island farmstead.
In 1980, when she was only 21, Kathleen rented a space her mother spotted and opened her first bake shop. She developed a full line of traditional American baked goods, perfecting every recipe herself and baking each dessert from scratch. Named after her father, Tate’s Bake Shop is the result of Kathleen’s love of baking and keen eye for quality.
I swear Jon must have a nose built for detecting baked goods inside a cardboard box, because he was all over this package before he even knew what was inside. It was all I could do to keep him away while I took photos and cut off a piece of the brownie for myself before he devoured it.
Brownies: Ingredients: Bittersweet chocolate, Cane Sugar, Eggs, Almond flour, Butter, Water, Vanilla extract, Salt, and Baking soda.
Chocolate Chip Cookies: Ingredients: Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, milk fat, soy lecithin [an emulsifier], vanilla, natural flavor), Rice Flour, Butter, Cane Sugar, Brown Cane Sugar, Eggs, Baking Soda, Salt, Vanilla Extract, Xanthan gum, and Water.
Needless to say neither of these bakery treats lasted long in our house. The brownies are thick and fudgy rectangles of heaven! The cookies are thin, and crisp with a wonderful butter flavor…just the way I like them! Tate’s Bake Shop Gluten-Free products can be purchased on their website or in their retail store in Southampton.
