Today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. One of the ways I remember this is that it’s on my dad’s birthday. And it just so happens that he’s a big chocolate fan.

I’m sure there will be places in and around Charlotte that will offer deals, but if you’d like to make your own at home, I have a great recipe. Over the years I’ve made numerous chocolate chip cookie recipes. When I was married and had young step-kids, I made them lots.

Within the last year, I think I’ve only made homemade chocolate chip cookies once and the recipe I used was easy and tasty. I found the recipe on Pinterest.  It’s Joanna Gaines ‘Magnolia Table’ recipe. The list of ingredients is short, and making the cookies is a breeze. The taste is truly ‘homemade’ and kids and adults will love these.

If it’s just too hot to turn the oven on, and I so understand that, some of the most amazing store-bought cookies are Tate’s.  I’ve found these at Harris Teeter and at Food Lion. These taste homemade. You can really taste the butter in these. Pretty good for store-bought.

Without question, there will be deals to take advantage of for National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, but at least there are a few options for ya. All you ever wanted to know about chocolate chip cookies can be found here. Happy eating!
