Chocolate Chip Cookies
By Ayana Alamgir
Chocolate chip cookies were born by mistake! Ruth Wakefield was the inventor. One day, while baking a batch of Butter Drop Do cookies, she added chopped up chunks of a semi sweet chocolate bar. She thought it would create solid chocolate cookies. But that didn’t go as planned, and a star was born! A chocolate chip cookie!
The chocolate chip cookie, originally called the “Toll House Crunch Cookie”, recipe was published in a Boston newspaper and quickly became one of America’s favorites. When you bite into a chocolate chip cookie, it’s chewy and doughy with semi sweet chocolate chunks that stick to your teeth that washes down perfectly with a crystal clear glass of milk. Yum!
