Crispy, salty-sweet perfection.
If you think Ina Garten is all-bake, all-the-time, you'd be mistaken. The Food Network star certainly loves whipping up a meal from scratch, but did you know she's got a go-to packaged cookie indulgence?
"The archives of Ina's 10 (soon-to-be 11) cookbooks are filled with dessert recipes, but there's only one *grocery store* treat that Ina swears by (and you can enjoy them without having to lift a finger): Tate's Bake Shop Chocolate Chip Cookies," writes Lauren Masur on The Kitchn.
Earlier this summer, Ina even listed Tate's Bake Shop as one of her favorite places to visit in the Hamptons (the company got its start in Southampton, but is now available nationwide). The thin, crispy chocole chip cookies provide a delectably satisfying crunch in each bite and — trust us when we say this — it's no easy task to say no to a second or third.

In Ina's Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake, she even suggests using three eight-ounce packages of the cookies (we're pretty sure they'd taste equally fabulous in any of our 9x13 icebox cakes, too). Who's ready for a cookie break?
