Best chocolate chip cookie in every state

National Cookie Day is right around the corner on August 4. But why wait? We think anytime is a great time to celebrate those sweet, round, slightly greasy baked treats!

Did you know that the word “cookie” is derived from the Dutch word “koekje”, meaning “little cake”? In the UK they call them biscuits – from the Latin for twice-baked. Here in the US, some of us are impatient enough to eat them that we’ll simply snack on the dough.

In our humble opinion, the chocolate chip cookie is the king of all cookies. That’s why we’ve found a great cookie spot for you in every US state. Get ready to bookmark your way through this round-up.
