Here are the giant chocolate chip cookies I made yesterday, they are just so delicious!! Some of you have heard the history of the chocolate chip cookie before but I’m gonna share it for those who haven’t heard it! • • • Chocolate chip cookies are an American classic & has been around for nearly 90 years. Everyone knows and loves this delicious recipe. I love the idea that for almost 90 years this simple, yet wonderful cookie has brought so many people together. I’m sure most people have some story from growing up about eating chocolate chips cookies or baking them with their mom, dad, grandparents, children, siblings.You get the idea! • • • We have Ruth Graves Wakefield to thank for this great American treasure. Ruth and her husband, Kenneth, were running The Toll House Inn near Whitman, Massachusetts. Ruth was known for baking and cooking the food for the guests at the Inn. One night, Ruth was working on some Chocolate Butter Drop cookies for her guests. She realized while baking that she didn’t have enough baking chocolate, so she tried to improvise. She decided that she would just chop up a bar of Nestle chocolate she had gotten, thinking the chocolate would melt and create the chocolate cookies she was trying to make. Instead, the chocolate did not melt into the batter. It only softened inside the cookie and kept its original shape. • • • So, the chocolate chip cookie was made by mistake and what a fantastic mistake to make. Ruth and her guests loved these accident cookies so much that she sent the recipe to The Betty Crocker Cooking School of the Air radio show. She wanted to share this new cookie with America. The cookie became insanely popular and well, the rest is history! Who doesn’t love a fresh baked, gooey, melt in your mouth chocolate chip cookie?! As my fiancé likes to say, “it’s good for da soul!” • • • What family stories do you have about chocolate chip cookies? Is there someone who you like to bake them with?? 🍪🍪🍪 • • • • #sprinklesofhistory #chocolatechipcookies #cookies #hugecookies #chocolatechip #history #happymistake #delicious #baking #baker #bakingmakesmehappy
