Meet The Woman Who Gave Us The Chocolate Chip Cookie
Today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day
So this week we honor the "chocolate chip cookie" It was invented , by accident , by Ruth Graves Wakefield in 1930. Wakefield was a dietician before she and her husband purchased a tourist lodge named the Toll House Inn. She is said to have been making chocolate cookiesand ran out of regular baker's chocolate, So she substituted broken pieces of semi-sweet chocolate from Nestle' thinking that they would melt and mix into the batter, but they did not and the chocolate chip cookie was born. Wakefield sold the recipe to Nestlé in exchange for a lifetime supply of chocolate chips.Thank you Ruth :)
Here is the original Nestle' Toll House Cookie Recipe
There are many forms of chocolate chip cookies and brands .... whats your favorite ? Think as far as "store" bought chocolate chips go I love "Chips Ahoy" and the "Entenmann's" Mini Soft Chocolate Chips :)
