The story of the Chocolate chip cookie is really an interesting one. In fact, did you know that the invention itself was really an accident? Nope, well, I didn"t think so. Let me tell you a little about it.
Have you ever wondered how the chocolate chip cookie came to be? Have you ever wondered who brought this American tradition into our homes? Do you know how they became so popular?
Well, it all started one day with a young lady named Ruth Wakefield. One day she was making some cookies for her guests. They were called Butter Drop Do"s. This cookie required semisweet chocolate pieces to be melted in the batter. Well she was in a hurry, she had beds to make and drapes to clean so, instead of melting the chocolate pieces in the batter she just chopped them up in the batter, thinking they would melt during the cooking process. To her surprise they stayed very much intact See what happens when you do not follow the directions?
Did you also know that the chocolate chip cookie is the most popular cookie in America? The Toll House produces thirty-three thousand cookies each day. In the world about 7 billion cookies are eaten annually that means 19,200 thousand cookies a day. That explains why 50% of cookies in American homes are chocolate chip.
As you can see this invention of the 1930"s had a powerful effect on the cookie industry. Whit the hopes you learned something about how it came to be, who invented it and the popularity of the chocolate chip cookie, I leave you with this plate of cookies to enjoy!!
