These whole wheat chocolate chip cookies are crispy on the edges but chewy in the middle- perfection!
Did you know that October is National Cookie Month? I think every month should be National Cookie Month. I love cookies. I especially love a good chocolate chip cookie. It is always my first choice.
When I was contacted by Tate’s Bake Shop and asked if I’d like to sample their Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies I of course said yes. I was intrigued by the combination of the whole wheat and dark chocolate.
I had heard of Tate’s Bake Shop, based in Southampton, NY but never had any of their cookies. They are an award winning bakery and have been voted America’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie by Rachel Ray! They also sent along a copy of their cook book which I was also excited to check out.
I have already tried a few recipes from it.
Tate’s Bake Shop is famous for their thin and crisp cookie. A little different than the typical soft, chewy cookie most of us are use too. But I have decided after sampling a Tate Bake Shop cookie, o.k., I sampled more than just one, that I like thin and crispy. A lot. They sent three bags of cookies and given that there are only two of us at home that makes for pretty good odds on the cookies! I guess I could have mailed a bag or two off to the college kids but I didn’t.
Of course, I couldn’t wait to try making my own Tate’s Bake Shop cookie so the first recipe I tried out of the cookbook was their chocolate chip cookie recipe. Although not quite as crisp as the ones they sent me they were delicious. A nice thin cookie but yet still chewy.
Remember those chocolate chip cookies I put in my Halloweenie Roast invites? Yeap, the same ones.
I also tried out their Chocolate Chip Cake when we had dinner guests this week. Among the oohs and ahhs the comment was made. “It tastes like a chocolate chip cookie but chews like a cake.” Yum! I’ve got a list of other recipes I want to try!!
