Award Winning Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe from Scratch

I don’t know about you, but I love a good chocolate chip cookie. When your brain is on the fritz and you need some comfort food in order to get through the day, sometimes only a soft, warm chocolate chip cookie will do. 

Brief History of the Chocolate Chip Cookie

The chocolate chip cookie was discovered around 1938 by Ruth Graves Wakefield and Sue Brides. During my grandmother’s generation, it was a favorite treat for every dessert.

During WWII, soldiers from Massachusetts would receive care packages with the cookies in them. They would then share them with other service members. And before long, soldiers were writing home for those ‘Toll House Cookies’.

Easy To Make

Good thing is that this award-winning recipe for chocolate chip cookies is super simple to make from scratch, so you won’t even have to resort to a trip to the bakery or expensive takeout if you’re craving a taste of home.

Family Tradition

Although my grandmother’s original recipe is unknown, we have found this recipe to be as close to hers as we could find. They are a warm, moist and delicious treat—a snack or dessert itself.

Chocolate chip cookies have been a favorite since childhood. The classic brown sugar and butter combination makes a warm and delicious chocolate cookie that is perfect to dip in a tall glass of milk.
