GDC Signature Chocolate Chip Cookies

GDC Chocolate chip cookies on a cooling rack

Since Jody was a kid her favorite cookie has been a simple chocolate chip! So when we decided to add cookies to our offerings awhile back, we opted for only one recipe: the best possible chocolate chip cookie we could create. And, wow, have they become popular!

While a great recipe is important, we wholeheartedly believe that using the best ingredients is what takes our cookies to the next level, because cookies are only as good as their ingredients. We use local eggs and dairy and, of course, great chocolate. We love our chocolate discs for cookies because they create amazing layers of chocolate!
