Christie Cookie

This Nashville institution is known worldwide for its chewy treats. A version of these cookies are available at their Germantown headquarters where you can also now get that signature dough in a handy scoop-and-bake tub (available only at that location). Made with the same real butter and Heath chocolate chips as the baked version, the dough makes for crowd-pleasing homemade cookies in a jiff.
1205 3rd Ave N; 615-242-3817; christiecookies.com


Famed for their decadent house-made cookies (the Kitchen Sink is a perennial favorite), Fido does not disappoint with its massive, super-thick version of the chocolate chip.

The Wild Cow

Made with fair trade, organic chocolate chips and high-quality whole wheat flour, the delicious specimens at The Wild Cow are stand-out on their own but even better when served in a cookie sandwich with vanilla buttercream. 1896 Eastland Ave; 615-262-2717; thewildcow.com

Dulce Desserts

This traditional recipe is made from scrap daily, yielding large, palm-size cookies with a slight, crunchy crumble. 1207 Villa Pl; 615-321-8700; dulcedesserts.com

Portland Brew

As big as a plate and caramelized perfectly, the chocolate chip cookies at Portland Brew are as coveted as the coffee. 2605 12th Ave S and 1921 Eastland Ave, 615-292-9004; facebook.com/portlandbreweast

Merridee's Bread and Breakfast

Using a classic, old-time recipe, Merridee's puts out perfectly crisp cookies that slightly ooze soft chocolate when bitten into. Baked daily! 110 4th Ave, Franklin; 615-790-3755; merridees.com

Bread & Company

This dreamy chocolate chip concoction, packed with actual chunks, not chips, is only slightly outdone by Bread & Co.'s peanut butter chocolate chunk cookie.
2525 West End Ave, plus other locations. 615-329-1400; breadandcompany.com

The Wild Muffin

The Wild Muffin strives for an all-organic line-up of cookies that includes rich chocolate and farm-fresh eggs and butter. The Good Ole Chocolate Chip Cookie is hearty and flavorful but for a zap of caffeine, try the Cappuccino Chocolate Chip with a hint of espresso and cinnamon that goes perfectly with a cup of joe.
6906 Charlotte Pk; 615-353-3998; thewildmuffin.com

Provence Breads & Café

You may be familiar with their luxe loaves, but this Nashville-based artisan bakery offers a French flare with pastries, macaroons and a delicious selection of cookies. Bring home the chocolate chunk pecan—a generous chocolate chip cookie doused with pecans and chocolate chunks.
1705 21st Ave S; 615-386-0363; provencebreads.com

Dozen Bakery

These top-notch locally crafted cookies are made from all-organic ingredients and are found at spots like Crema, Hot & Cold, Thistle Stop Cafe, and the bakery's location inside the Nashville Farmer's Market.
900 Rosa L Parks Blvd; 615-509-9680; dozen-nashville.com

Sweet 16th

If you prefer your chocolate chips with a thin, sugary crunch these generously sized bites are worth bringing home (especially since you can get 16 for $4.95). 311 N 16th St; 615-226-8367; sweet16th.com
