There is actually some debate on the origin of chocolate chip cookies, in particular, whether or not they were initially an accident. One account of the story says that in 1938, Ruth Graves Wakefield, chef and proprietor of the Toll House Inn in Massachusetts, was trying to make chocolate butter “drop do” cookies for guests. Out of baker’s chocolate, Ruth opted to chop a block of semi-sweet chocolate into pieces, expecting it to melt and disperse. That didn’t happen though, and instead tasty chocolate chip cookies were born.
An alternative origin story, probably more likely, is that Ruth Graves Wakefield created the chocolate chip cookie on purpose, while she was trying to improve a butterscotch cookie recipe that she offered at her restaurant. That story also claims the chocolate block used was given to her by a friend named Andrew Nestle. You might recognize his last name from somewhere?
From a possible accident in the back of an inn, to Santa’s favorite pairing with a glass of milk, the journey of chocolate chip cookies over the past 80 plus years has been eventful, creative and always delicious.
