Here’s a unique recipe for Ardelles Place cooki homemade chocolate chip cookies.

The chocolate chip cookie is one of the most iconic American desserts, and it was first invented in the 1930s by Ruth Wakefield, who owned and operated the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts.

According to the legend, Ruth Wakefield was making a batch of chocolate cookies one day when she realized that she was out of baker’s chocolate. She decided to substitute pieces of Nestle semi-sweet chocolate into her cookie dough, hoping that the chocolate would melt and create a marbled effect in the cookies.

However, the chocolate did not melt as Ruth had expected. Instead, the chocolate pieces held their shape and created a delicious and unexpected contrast to the cookie dough. Ruth’s customers loved the new cookies, and soon they became a signature item at the Toll House Inn.

In 1939, Ruth Wakefield entered into a business agreement with Nestle, which would provide her with a lifetime supply of chocolate in exchange for the right to use her recipe and the Toll House name. Nestle began selling chocolate chips in a convenient package, and the chocolate chip cookie became a staple of American baking.

Today, chocolate chip cookies are enjoyed all over the world, and there are countless variations on the classic recipe. From chewy and soft to crisp and crunchy, there is a chocolate chip cookie for everyone to love.
