One of the things I have learned since starting our cookie business is that people are passionate about their Chocolate Chip Cookies!
We often have discussions about what types of cookies people like, Peanut Butter, Snickerdoodle, Oatmeal Raisin are some of the favorites, but when we talk about baking these cookies the discussions never get as heated as they do when we discuss the basic Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.
How do I know people are passionate about their chocolate chip cookies? It is not uncommon for us to recieve phone calls from our customers on a weekend asking for a couple dozen...we are closed on weekends!
Nope..We love our chocolate chip cookies.
Invented by the proprietor of the Toll House Inn of Whitman Massachusetts in the 1930's, Ruth Wakefield created this menu item as a way to satisfy the sweet tooth of her guests. Years later she would publish a cookbook Toll House Tried and True Recipes that included her recipe for Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cook that was soon being baked by housewives all across the country.

The debate rages over which is better, thick or thin, chewy or crisp, big or little, everyone has their personal preference. I prefer a chewy chocolate chip cookie but with crisp outer edges, the best of both worlds if you as me. But whether you like them crunchy or soft there is sure to be a cookie that has the perfect texture for you.
The chocolate chip cookie has been transformed into more types of products than any other cookie. It may have started with only chocolate chips, but today variations include white chocolate chips, Reeses Pieces, M&M's, walnuts are oftened added to the dough to give them a bit of crunch, or maybe Macadamia nuts. Chocolate and Peanut Butter is a classic combination so why not Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies?
