Celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day Sunday by Visiting One of These 10 Mouth-Watering Eateries
Sunday we pay tribute to one of America’s favorite desserts with National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. The beloved treat was created nearby in Whitman, Mass., in 1938, when local chefs Ruth Graves Wakefield and Sue Brides sprinkled chopped pieces of a Nestle semi-sweet chocolate bar into their vanilla cookies. At the time, Wakefield owned the popular Toll House Inn, which was famous for its butterscotch nut cookies. She and Brides wanted to give diners something new and the Toll House cookie, as it was originally known, was born.
The two chefs could never have imagined how popular their creation would become. Today, at least 7 billion chocolate chip cookies are consumed annually in the United States.
In honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day and given that it’s the official state cookie of Massachusetts, we thought it fitting to put together a list of 10 local restaurants and bakeries around Boston known for their delicious chocolate chip cookies. Our top spots:
