Tate's Bake Shop Chocolate Chip Cookies

"These are the best thin and crispy type of chocolate chip cookies! The recipe hails from Tate's Bake Shop in Southampton, NY. The owner, Kathleen King has a cookbook with a forward by Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa) and the recipe is in that book, although I found it on-line. I tried these cookies this summer after my friend, Jane, turned me onto them. I had been buying them but now that I can make them, I'm saving a ton (of $) but gaining a ton(of weight)! Click on this link for photos and info. http://www.tatesbakeshoponline.com/store/ Rachael Ray featured Tate's in her Hampton's on $40. a day (she could only afford one raspberry square! - I posted the recipe here recipe #237056 . Enjoy with cold milk! *Reviewer Chef Crazed Tyler is right about the brown sugar and I have changed the amount here to reflect the proper amount! Thank you!"

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Grease or line 2-3 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt.
  • In another large bowl, cream the butter and sugars, then add the water and vanilla. Mix until just combined.
  • Add eggs to the butter mixture and mix them lightly.
  • Stir in the flour mixture. When flour is mixed in, fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Drop 2 tablespoonfuls of the cookie dough 2-inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets. Make sure the cookie sheets are well greased. I like to use parchment paper.
  • Bake for 12-17 minutes or until the edges and centers of the cookies are golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool on wire racks.

    Oolala, thank you so very much for this recipe. I am in heaven. Being gluten-free, I substituted the AP flour with white rice flour, added 1 tbsp. of water instead of a tsp. and 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum. They taste better than any Tate's chocolate chip cookie I have ever had and I am so very happy!! Outstanding!!

    good cookies but the other commenters are correct that this is essentially the toll house recipe with a bit less flour and a bit of water added. it tate's is claiming this is their recipe they are being disingenuous. the real secret is to used melted butter and not creamed softened butter. melted butter makes the cookies flat and crispy.

    I was a bit disappointed with this recipe. I followed it perfectly but they baked up like any normal chocolate chip cookie. I was hoping they'd be more like the one's you buy directly from her. It was good though, really good. Although I found on two other websites that the brown sugar measure is 3/4 cup, so I used that amount.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
