egg shaped chocolate chip cookie with icing

I don’t think I ever grew out of my delight for chocolate chip cookies.

There are conflicting stories about the origin of the chocolate chip cookie and the acquisition of the recipe by NestlĂ©. The commonality between the two stories is that the chocolate chip cookie was accidentally developed by Ruth Wakefield in 1933. Mrs. Wakefield owned the Toll House Inn, in Whitman, Massachusetts, a very popular restaurant in the 1930s. The restaurant’s popularity was not just due to its home-cooked style meals; Mrs. Wakefield’s policy was to give diners a whole extra helping of their entrĂ©es to take home with them and a serving of her homemade cookies for dessert. Mrs. Wakefield’s cookbook, Toll House Tried and True Recipes, was published in 1936 by M. Barrows & Company, New York. Included is the recipe for the Toll House Cookie, originally called the Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie.
