Say what you want about packaged cookies, but Tate’s Bake Shop’s cellophane wrapped gluten-free cookies are to DIE for. I buy a package and within an hour the package is gone…seriously. I am ashamed to admit it but I have absolutely no self-control when it comes to Tate’s cookies….none.
The crisp, super buttery and chocolate filled saucer-like cookies aren’t for those who like Levain or chewy soft cookies but to me? They are heaven. They taste like they are bathed in butter, but apparently are 100 calories each and surprisingly aren’t greasy at all. And I can honestly say that not only can you find no difference in taste between the gluten-free and original, but dare I say I like the gluten-free ones better!? For the record, I do… I really REALLY do
I rarely eat Tate’s with others around for fear they will find my lack of self-control and ferocious attack of the sleeve of cookies disgusting (my boyfriend does!). So instead I chow down in the comforts of my own home, usually on my couch, with something on the telly, a glass of milk in one hand and a package of Tate’s in the other. I carefully break them in half (can’t waste any crumb!), dunk them in vitamin D milk (don’t judge it’s best with cookies!) and savor every single bite while also making sure to lick up the crumbs left at the bottom of my glass. The whole experience was my single vice that no one knew about… until now
I’ve heard Tate’s expanded the gluten-free options (their website has brownies but only chocolate chip cookies) and so I ‘m gonna stop by their Southampton location en route back to the city this weekend for a little fix! If I find that they now offer their white chocolate macadamia nut cookies gluten-free I may just freak out in the store and scare everyone around me with my unbridled excitement. Here’s to hoping….
