if you have a sweet tooth and you are going to eat a cookie…make it a Tate’s chocolate chip cookie. Tate’s thin, crisp chocolate cookies are amazing. I buy them at balducci’s in Westport but I have also made them myself from my Tate’s Bakeshop cookbook and they were perfect! the funny thing is that another fav cookie contender is Ina Garten’s (Barefoot Contessa)chocolate chip cookies and she wrote the foreward in Kathleen King’s book below – so I must really know something about chocolate chip cookies! I always have them in my cookie jar when I am having visitors at my house and they are always a favorite!
