Perfect for dessert lovers and budding bakers, this is the true story of a girl who followed her dream to make the perfect chocolate-chip cookie–and, one day, founded world-renowned TATE’S BAKE SHOP®. Original cookie recipe included!

Eleven-year-old Kathleen King was positively obsessed with baking the perfect chocolate chip cookie. She experimented over and over and over with different recipes–less flour, more butter, longer baking time–until she got it just right.

Customers flocked to her family’s farm stand on Long Island for Kathleen’s enormous, buttery chocolate chip cookies. And when she grew up, Kathleen started a cookie company called TATE’S BAKE SHOP®. TATE’S grew into a multi-million-dollar empire and, today, they are a household name and their cookies are sold all over the country!

Cookie Queen is the delicious true story of how a little girl’s dream turned into an enormous cookie empire.
