Well not only did the nice people at Tate’s Bake Shop send us their cookbook, they also sent us an awesome sampler pack of their cookies including oatmeal raisin, white chocolate macadamia nut, and chocolate chip(disclaimer: we received the cookies and cookbook for free):
Mandi and I were super excited to dive into the cookies. We each sampled all of the goods with the help of our hungry husbands:
First up, Oatmeal Raisin:
Erica: The oatmeal gives the cookie great texture, but it still packs a nice crunch.
Josh: These are good in milk, but I’m not a big raisin fan.
Next, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut:
Erica: I don’t typically like nuts in cookies, but these were pretty tasty. I always think of macadamia nut filled treats as heavy, but these cookies tasted sweet but light. This was my favorite of the bunch!
Josh: These are good in milk
Last up, Chocolate Chip:
Erica: I was AMAZED how closely these tasted to the batch I baked up earlier in the week (just a lot more crispy). Always a classic!
Josh: These are my favorite. They’re good in milk
And Mandi & Bryan’s take on the cookies: “We loved these little guys! We are usually more of the chewy, soft cookie type, but Bryan decided to dig into his cookies with a glass of milk and he said that made them even better. We both agreed that they'd also be good with a cup of tea or coffee. They are definitely buttery, crispy, thin cookies, meant to be paired with a cozy beverage. Our favorite was the oatmeal raisin =) And, can we please talk about how incredible the chocolate chunk cookies Erica made from the cookbook are? Um, yea. Go get these cookies!!”
