National Chocolate Chip Day is coming up on Sunday, May 15 — but who really needs an excuse (or a specific day or time) to make a delicious batch of chocolate chip cookies?

For Texan mom Jennifer Fleming, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies have been a regular on her counter since she was a little girl.

“I remember standing in the kitchen as a young girl, fascinated by my mother’s impeccable cooking,” Fleming said in an interview.

“I developed a love for cooking and baking through my mother. One of my favorite baking recipes is from my mother’s friend, Sandra Killian.”

“My kids, as well as my husband Scott, absolutely love the recipe.”

Killian, a native of Beaumont, Texas, created the “Beaumont Texas Chocolate Chip Cookies” decades ago.

Since then, they’ve made quite a few rounds with friends and family.

The best part of the baked treat? The cookies are fantastic.

Jennifer’s daughter, Izzy, said these cookies have been in her life…maybe forever.

“Growing up, when I saw the Kitchen Aid come out, I knew it was going to be the best day. My siblings and I hovered over my mother, fighting to lick the beater.”

“Growing up, when I saw the Kitchen Aid come out, I knew it was going to be the best day,” she said. “My siblings and I floated over my mother, fighting to lick the knocker.”

During the pandemic, Izzy Fleming joined an email chain with friends across the country to share their favorite recipes.

When she chose the one to share, she said the Beaumont Texas Chocolate Chip Cookies were the ones she knew would put a smile on anyone’s face.
