Today was Day #12 of Chocolate and Gluten Free Cookies Theme Week(s).

Tate's Bake Shop (Southampton, NY) is based in a charming village in the Hamptons. It will be a while before I can make it out to Southampton, but that is the beauty of food. It allows us to travel via our palette and imagination.

The company's Double Chocolate Chip Cookies were a hit, possessing all the qualities I look for in a crispy-style chocolate gluten-free cookie. My checklist is below.
  • Good balance between crispy and chewy - Yes, 95% crispy, 5% chewy
  • Holds together without an excess of vegetable gum(s), not too crumbly - Yes
  • Slight buttery flavor and texture - Yes (contained butter)
  • Quality ingredients list - Yes; first ingredient listed was chocolate chips (bonus points)
These chocolate + chocolate chip cookies were just the right thickness (i.e. not too thick or thin) for the optimal buttery crunch. And the tiny hint of salt was perfect.
