READ: Dessert Lady’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

They’re great with a tall glass of milk, or on their own. The aroma of them baking fills the air, existing in all shapes and sizes – this classic truly comes in first when it comes to ooey gooey, chocolatey treats – if you haven’t already guessed what we’re referring to, it’s the Chocolate Chip Cookie!

Growing up, most of us have fond memories of these little round treats – sneaking a bite of the raw cookie dough, the smell of freshly baked cookies lingering in the air, the food coma you’d enter after eating 1…2….3 too many. This nostalgic feeling of comfort and home is what Dessert Lady is all about and is part of the reason why we always have fresh cookies on hand at both of our locations. Fun fact – did you know that the smell of chocolate chip cookies resonates with us so much, that real estate agents will sometimes bake a fresh batch of cookies before a showing to make a house feel more like a potential home to buyers?

Not only are Chocolate Chip Cookies nostalgic and delicious, but they have such an amazing history too! They were invented in Whitman, Massachusetts in 1937 when Ruth Graves Wakefield of the Toll House Inn added cut-up chunks of semi-sweet Nestlé chocolate to a cookie recipe. The chocolate chips that we know today weren’t invented until later on in 1939, specifically for their role in Chocolate Chip Cookies.

What makes our Chocolate Chip Cookies stand out from all the rest is that our cookies are made with butter, and not oil. Making them super soft and moist! Also, our chocolate chips are imported from Belgium – and they’re just the right amount of sweetness.

One of the things we love so much about this simple little treat, is that they’re so easy to make. We’re sharing our recipe with you today so you can reminisce and bring back those childhood feels. Remember, our famous chocolate chip cookies are always available at both Dessert Lady locations (12 Cumberland St. & 1 Sultan st.) so if you want to leave the baking to us, we’ve got you covered.
