SAVANNAH, Georgia -- What foodie doesn't love a chocolate chip cookie?! Well, foodie friends, this is our week, National Chocolate Chip Week -- March 14-20, 2015.

Chocolate Chip Cookies, an
All-American sweet dessert!
Happy Chocolate Chip Cookie Week!

Featuring Georgia's local artisan cheese, plus 1 ½ c. semi-sweet chocolate chips,  Zeigler House Inn's own Jackie Heinz shares one of her favorite recipes -- Aztec Cheddar Cookies from Flat Creek Lodge.  

Whether rocking on a porch or busy in the kitchen, surrounded by friends, family or strangers, southerners like to tell stories! 

The Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie has a story of an innovative woman inventor, one with ingenuity who was a small inn owner.

The popular USA cookie, first published as "Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie", was invented by Ruth Graves Wakefield. She owned the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts -- a very popular restaurant that featured home cooking in the 1930s.
Congratulations, Boston! On July 9, 1997, the Chocolate Chip Cookie was designated the Official Cookie of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
