The baker added Pecans, Brazil nuts, chopped dates, oats, and chopped Beacon chocolate to the dough to create these delectable Chocolate Chip Cookies. Oh, Yummyness.

A chocolate chip cookie is a drop cookie that features chocolate chips or chocolate morsels as its distinguishing ingredient. Chocolate chip cookies originated in the United States around 1938 when Ruth Graves Wakefield chopped up a Nestlé semi-sweet chocolate bar and added the chopped chocolate to a cookie recipe.
