Who Invented the Chocolate Chip Cookie?
In the 1930’s Ruth Graves Wakefield created one of the most iconic desserts, the chocolate chip cookie. The original recipe was called the Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie in honour of The Toll House Inn that Mrs.Wakefield operated with her husband.
Ruth Wakefield wanted to offer something different from the Butterscotch Nut Cookie that their patrons enjoyed. With the addition of Nestlé semi–sweet chocolate bar this new cookie was invented.
The recipe was later given to Nestlé. In return the payment was a lifetime supply of their beloved chocolate.
Here are a few cookie variations that were inspired by this American classic:
Chocolate chunk cookie
Double chocolate chip cookie
Oatmeal chocolate chip cookie
Peanut butter chocolate chip cookie
Triple chip chocolate chip cookie
Vegan chocolate chip cookie
White chocolate chip cookie
