It’s time to get your dessert on. There’s no better day to eat dessert before dinner than today, National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. (We’re all looking for an excuse to eat sweets on a Tuesday, right?) Grocery store-brand cookies are not an option on this particular day, so we went on a cookie crawl to find the best chocolate chip cookies around North Texas. Following is a list of local favorite hand-made, soft center, crispy edges, gooey, gigantic, and delicious cookies in the city. There’s even a free cookie deal at Tiff’s Treats.
Surely one bite (or 17) won’t hurt.

We couldn’t write about National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day without including this now common household name, Crumbl Cookie. The iconic pink box holds what they like to call “world’s best chocolate chip cookie.” There may be a line when you go, but there’s no doubt the ginormous hand-sized cookie is worth the wait.

Cookie Society, featured in Oprah’s Favorite Things 2020, lives up its national recognition and hype. Owners Marissa and Jeff Allen, a former NFL player, nailed this recipe.

The cookies are topped with flakes of sea salt, giving it the perfect touch to finish off this ultimate gourmet cookie.

Each item is baked in small batches throughout the day to guarantee each treat is fresh. Go for the milk chocolate cookie if you like desserts on the sweeter side.

What’s better than an oven-baked cookie? Some will say a cookie in its raw form. We couldn’t resist the urge to try this cookie dough cookie from The Cookie Rack. The rich cookie base is topped with cookie dough buttercream, chocolate ganache and mini chocolate chips – seriously all the good stuff. A beautiful cookie but also the sweetest, so don’t forget a tall glass of milk! Cookie dough lovers, this one’s for you.

Scratch-made cookies are one of the many sweet treats here. Don’t be surprised if you go for a cookie and end up with a brownie, blondie or both — or those hot chocolate biscottis that are the work of some mysterious art.

Colorado-based but locally owned in Frisco, Mary’s Mountain Cookies brings a level of comfort. The chocolate chip cookie tasted familiar — similar to Grandma’s chocolate chip cookies baked for Santa Christmas Eve but twice as large. The classic, traditional chocolate chip cookie taste never fails.
