Origin of the Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie
We have Ruth Wakefield to thank for the chocolate chip cookie. She began making the chocolate chip cookies in the 1930s. Ruth baked a variety of confections for you guessed it, the Toll House Inn. A happy accident created the chocolate chip cookie, she wanted to bake unsweetened chocolate into cookies, but she only had semisweet chocolate. So she chipped up chocolate and baked it into those cookies. So it is her, that we owe our thanks.
