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.
