Cappuccino Shortbread and Tate’s Bake Shop Giveaway

Cappuccino Shortbread - 6

A couple weeks ago, the nice people over at Tate’s Bake Shop asked me if I’d like to receive a copy of their cookbook, and if I’d like to do a giveaway on my blog. To be perfectly honest,  I had never heard of Tate’s Bake Shop or their cookbook before, despite their reputation for being the best bakery in the Hamptons. However, with a foreword written by Ina Garten, I figured the book had to be good…and I was right.

This cookbook is packed with delicious dessert recipes, from cakes and cookies to muffins and pies; the very same recipes they use to make the baked goods served in their bake shop in the Hamptons. Kathleen’s intention is for the reader to be able to make a dessert in less time than it would take to go to the grocery store and buy it, and that is definitely my kind of thinking. Since I’m a bit of a coffee addict, the first recipe that caught me eye was the cappuccino shortbread, so I am sharing that recipe with you so that you can have a little taste of Tate’s Bake Shop. You can also enter for a chance to win an assorted cookie gift pack, which includes chocolate chip, white chocolate macadamia nut, and oatmeal raisin cookies…

…as well as a copy of their cookbook signed by Kathleen herself, so that you can give all of their mouth-watering recipes a try!

Here’s how to win:

Giveaway ends Monday, December 6th at midnight, and is open to US resident only. One winner will be randomly selected using and announced Tuesday, December 7th. And, even if you don’t win, Tate’s is also offering a 15% discount on any Tate’s Bake Shop purchase between now and December 31st! Just use the discount code “cookie” at the time of purchase. And now for the recipe!

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, beat all of the ingredients together except the chocolate.
