Tucker House Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here at the Tucker House Inn & Harrison House Suites, we like to welcome our guests to their room every day with a plate of housemade cookies baked and delivered fresh each afternoon. Often our guests enjoy these treats so much, they’ll shyly ask if we would be willing to share the recipe. (The triple ginger cookies at Christmas time were a particularly popular request.) We love to share recipes both online and in person, so after we wrote up our chocolate chip cookie recipe for a recent guest, we though we might as well share it with everyone.
