ABILENE, Texas (BigCountryHomepage.com) – Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven? Big Country Homepage is celebrating National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day with the top five places to get a cookie in Abilene, with a little help from Yelp.com.

According to the National Day Calendar, we can thank Ruth Graves Wakefield for the delicious chocolate chip cookie. The chocolate chip cookie was first created August 4, 1937 when Wakefield ran out of baker’s chocolate and used semi-sweet chocolate instead.
