ST. PETERSBURG, Florida – After decades of secrecy, the Obama Crunch, a favorite cookie at Atwater’s restaurant, is on the blackboard to reveal its secret recipe.
Atwater’s Restaurant in St. Petersburg is a community touchstone.
The long-standing family restaurant is now run by Eric Atwater, the son of the original owners.
Not only was he deeply involved in charity, but he made a name for himself in his already talented culinary family because of his cookies.
The Obama crisis is a big problem.
