TOLL HOUSE COOKIES

The original chocolate chip cookie, the Toll House Cookie, was invented by Ruth Graves Wakefield in the 1930s.

Ruth and her husband Kenneth owned the Toll House Inn, near Whitman, Massachusetts. Ruth cooked for her guests, and one day had to substitute semi-sweet chocolate for baker's chocolate in a cookie recipe. She chopped the chocolate in bits, but when she took the cookies from the oven, the semi-sweet chocolate had not melted into the dough as the baker's chocolate had.

These cookies with chocolate 'chips' became an immediate hit with her guests.
