Spreading some sugar because it’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!
Here’s a quick history I got from Punch Bowl:
In the 1930s, Ruth Graves Wakefield created the original chocolate chip cookie at her Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. Ruth intended to bake chocolate cookies for her guests, but she ran out of baker’s chocolate. She substituted with chopped up semi-sweet chocolate morsels and discovered that the pieces did not melt into the dough as she expected. Her cookies were an instant hit. Today, 25% of all the cookies baked in the United States are chocolate chip!
Thank you Ruth Graves for your creativity, and thank you Murphy’s law for the absence of baker’s chocolate on that fateful day! 🙂
Give your mouth a high-five today! Eat a chocolate chip cookie! Eat! Eat! Eat!
