Cookie Crumbs: Hit it out of the park with Roberto’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

We Energies Cookie Book recipes are perfect for celebrations of all kinds. No matter the occasion, you’ll find a recipe that’s just right.

The chocolate chip cookie was invented in Massachusetts in the 1930s, making it truly an American classic – and a great dessert to pair with our national pastime. The Milwaukee Brewers opening day is coming up on April 3, after all, and your game day party or tailgate will be all the sweeter with a platter of Roberto’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. This particular recipe has a unique claim to fame: It was submitted to us by Brewers owner Mark Attanasio and his wife, Debbie.

The Attanasios contributed to our 2016 Cookie Book, the Wisconsin Heritage edition, which featured recipes from many notable names in Wisconsin entertainment, culture, business and industry. Among them are recipes from Admirals owner Harris Turer and Bucks head coach Jason Kidd, so you can celebrate Milwaukee teams with crowd-pleasing cookies year-round.
