Chocolate Chip Cookie: America’s Favorite Cookie?

One of the things that the cookie business has taught me is that people are passionate about their Chocolate Chip Cookies in all of their variations!

Discussions about what types of cookies people like, Peanut Butter, Snickerdoodle, and Oatmeal Raisin are fine but when we talk about these cookies the discussions never get as heated as they do when we discuss the Chocolate Chip Cookie.

American original, this cookie was invented by the proprietor of the Toll House Inn of Whitman Massachusetts in the 1930’s, Ruth Wakefield created this menu item as a way to satisfy the sweet tooth of her guests. Years later she would publish a cookbook Toll House Tried and True Recipes that included her recipe for Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cook that was soon being baked by housewives all across the country.

The debate rages over which is better, thick or thin, chewy or crisp, big or little, everyone has their personal preference. I prefer a chewy one but with crisp outer edges, the best of both worlds if you ask me. But whether you like them crunchy or soft there is sure to be a cookie that has the perfect texture for you.

Not Just Chips

The chocolate chip cookie has been transformed into more types of products than any other cookie. It may have started with only chocolate, but today variations include white chocolate morsels, Reese’s Pieces, M&M’s, walnuts are often added to the dough to give them a bit of crunch, or maybe Macadamia nuts. Chocolate and Peanut Butter is a classic combination so why not Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Don’t like a cookie, turn them into a bar and lets call the Chocolate Morsel Bar Cookies baked in a brownie pan!

How about a GIANT cookie? There is such a thing as a 12 inch diameter, 27 ounce monster cookie that would feed an entire children’s birthday party, or one really, really hungry cookie monster.

A flavor that we get asked to make a lot is Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, and we have a customer that LOVES his Oatmeal Walnut Chocolate Chip cookies.

What started in a little country Inn has grown into something remarkable and while there are many variations of this American classic one thing is for sure…we love our Chocolate Chip Cookies in all of their forms. What is your favorite?

Make Extra Money With Sugar Cookies

The bottom line is that almost everyone in the world loves cookies. It really doesn’t matter what kind of cookies either, there are fans of each and every kind to be found. Cookies are used as party favors, gifts, and used to make people feel better.

Cookies are also one thing that brings many families together; how many times did you make cookies with your mother or grandmother, and how many times have you gone on to repeat that with your own children? A hundred times? More than a thousand times? There even people who keep cookie dough in their fridge at all times just in case they want a cookie or a spoonful of dough. If you want to make some great extra income, then you might want to try your hand in the cookie business.

If you don’t have a lot of money for startup costs, then you could start off with one kind of cookie, such as sugar cookies. They are basically just flour, sugar, butter, and eggs. Most of the time, even one recipe of sugar cookie dough will allow you to make several dozen cookies at a time. Even if you only charged five dollars per dozen, you will still be making quite a bit of profit for your efforts.

Once you have made and sold a few batches of sugar cookies, then you could either stick with sugar cookies or you could branch out into different kinds of cookies. You could even turn this part time money making venture into a full time job. It all depends on how much money you want to make and how much effort you are willing to put into it.

Become a Successful Entrepreneur – Build Your Own Cookie Business From Scratch

Let’s get one thing straight. Cookies are great! Everyone from the smallest child to the oldest adult can always appreciate a good cookie. They are made at home, bought at the store or bakery, given as gifts and party favors in nearly every situation imaginable. A stake in the cookie market can be very lucrative, as well as rewarding for you and your wallet.

So if you are looking for a great business opportunity, why not try your hand at selling cookies. Your business may sell the kinds of cookies that you can normally only get from your grandma. Or perhaps yours will be the business to sell the most flavors, or the biggest cookies, or even the smallest. There are literally thousands and thousands of styles and combinations for business ideas that can make you very successful. What about a cookie delivery business where fresh baked homemade cookies arrive at customer’s doors in thirty minutes or less? You could even just go with a basic sugar cookie recipe, but cut them out into all different shapes, sizes and decorations to go with every holiday or occasion.

Personalized cookies are also a fabulous gift, and can also be used to commemorate dates like weddings and anniversaries. In the cookie business, it is easy to see that such cheap ingredients such as flour, sugar, eggs, and other flavorings can easily be turned into a product that is not only eye catching and tasty, but also one that can bring in a fabulous stream of income for years and years to come.
