Cookie week is nearing an end. I hope you enjoy the last two cookies I have for you. Today’s comes from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook by Kathleen King. Tate’s is a well known bakery in the Hamptons and surrounding area and is famous for their chocolate chip cookies. As I perused the cookbook, these orange and oat chewies stood out. I just had to try them.
According to the note above the recipe, Kathleen got it from her professor at Suny Cobleskill College who’s sister created the recipe to win a Pillsbury bake-off contest. I figured the recipe had to be good and they were.
They are made with a combination of butter and shortening. They also include flour, oats, coconut and walnuts. The orange flavor comes in by added orange juice and orange zest,
These thin cookies are crisp yet chewy and the orange flavor is a welcomed addition. I always think of oranges at Christmas. I always got one in the toe of my stocking. The smell of a fresh orange is one of my favorite smells. These orange and oat chewies are perfect for Christmas.

I’ve wanted to make these since you posted, but as with all goodies, when I make them, *I* eat them! 😉 I put it off until recently and then the weather here in TX has been so hot I didn’t want to bake, but a spring storm rolled through here last night and dropped our temps to the 60s … PERFECT, quiet, kid-free day to bake, and they’re SO good! I think I’ll try adding more zest next time since I didn’t quite get enough orange flavor for my taste, but otherwise, perfection!
[…] perfect for the busy holiday season when baked goodies are in high demand. I tried the orange and oat chewies and loved […]
I’ve made a similar recipe before, and they were delicious! This makes me want to try this version!
