It's National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!

Sweeten Your Day Today With A Chocolate Chip Cookie!

 

"If I had any choice in the matter, I’d stay in my comfy bed and eat warm chocolate chip cookies all day.”

... Simone Elkeles

 

Hope your day has gotten off to a sweet start... and to help make it sweeter, here's a reminder that today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! It's a great excuse to go out and sweeten your day by enjoying a chocolate chip cookie or two (or three). Now, I'm not a big cookie eater, but I will say that chocolate chip cookies, especially those made with semi-sweet chocolate, I find hard to resist.

 

"How can you stay worried when someone gives you warm chocolate chip cookies?"

... Robin Brande

 

CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE HISTORY

 

Did you know that 25% of all cookies baked are chocolate chip? In the 1930's, Ruth Graves Wakefield created the original chocolate chip cookie at her Toll House Inn (Toll House Cookies anyone?) in Whitman, Massachusetts. Ruth had planned to bake chocolate cookies for her guests, but she ran out of baker’s chocolate. She substituted with chopped up semi-sweet chocolate morsels and discovered that the pieces did not melt into the dough as she expected. Her cookies were an instant hit. And the rest, as they say, is history. And now chocolate chip cookies can be considered one of America's classic desserts.

 

"When we think of classic American desserts, we tend to imagine apple pie and ice cream. However, the most classic American dessert of all might be the chocolate chip cookie."

... Homaro Cantu

 

CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE FACTS

  • 7 billion Chocolate Chip Cookies eaten in the United States every year, with about 50% of those homemade cookies. Projections indicate this number will grow to 9 billion by 2030.

  • American's favorite cookie is the Chocolate Chip cookie. Americans are the world leaders in chocolate-chip cookie consumption.

  • Chocolate chip cookies were originally called Chocolate Crunch Cookies.

  • Chocolate chip cookies are the #1 favorite with every demographic.


Nowadays, we use all kinds of chocolate in cookies and other baked goods--milk, semi-sweet, mint, white, etc. in all sorts of baked goods from cookies, to muffins to brownies. My local bagel shop has chocolate chip bagels (soooo hard to resist). In honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, the Popular Cookie Recipes website offers an excellent recipe and "how to" for chocolate chip cookies, as well as some fun ideas on how to celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day.

No, don't like bagels that much, too much bread.

Hi Nina,
I do like cookies in general and when given a choice, it's always chocolate chip.

Nina- my mother always had homemade chocolate chip cookies in the cookie jar for us. To this day, I cannot turn down a good homemade chocolate chip cookie!!! (it has to be homemade!!!)

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... we had no homemade cookies in my home growing up... neither my mother nor my grandmother baked. I attribute my lack of cookie baking skills to this fact. That being said, I don't care for mass produced cookies, in general... if I eat cookies they need to be home baked or from a wonderful bakery shop.
