Today the chocolate chip cookie comes in so many varieties and is such an essential member of the American dessert family, that it’s hard to imagine that there was once a time when it wasn’t even an option. The cookie was the invention of Toll House Inn restaurant owner and chef Ruth Graves Wakefield (1903 – 1977). It was a hit with customers, and instead of keeping her recipe secret, she included it in her cookbooks and struck a deal with Nestle to print the recipe on every bag of their new chocolate morsels.
