National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

Who doesn't love a good chocolate chip cookie ? Or a half dozen of them fresh out of the oven? Apparently not many as the chocolate chip cookie is America's # 1 cookie .Here's a short history before you get the ingredients out and start to create this wonderful treat.


Ruth Graves Wakefield on National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day is given credit for creating this little gem.Thanks to her inventiveness and curiosity, chocolate chips and a cookie dough go together. And for this reason, we hover around ovens savoring the moment the timer dings.

Imagine if Ruth Graves Wakefield hadn’t run out of baker’s chocolate for her cookie recipe that day in 1937. Because that’s what happened. The cookie recipe she was preparing called for baker’s chocolate and would have blended smoothly into the dough. However, she was out. And what if Mrs. Wakefield hadn’t considered using semi-sweet chocolate instead? She figured it would just melt into the dough and work much like the baker’s chocolate.

Well, none of that happened. Instead of interruptions or doubts, the baker added the chocolate to the dough. Moments later the mouthwatering aroma began to waft from Mrs. Wakefield’s oven. Perhaps the smell lured a child into the kitchen. Or maybe a guest at the Tollhouse Inn she and her husband owned. We may not know the finer details of the day the chocolate chip cookie came to be. However, we do know Ruth Graves Wakefield made it happen.

Make sure the milk is extra cold and enjoy!
