Brief History of the Chocolate Chip Cookie
The chocolate chip cookie was discovered around 1938 by Ruth Graves Wakefield and Sue Brides. During my grandmother’s generation, it was a favorite treat for every dessert.
Easy To Make
Good thing is that this award-winning recipe for chocolate chip cookies is super simple to make from scratch, so you won’t even have to resort to a trip to the bakery or expensive takeout if you’re craving a taste of home.
Although my grandmother’s original recipe is unknown, we have found this recipe to be as close to hers as we could find. They are a warm, moist and delicious treat—a snack or dessert itself.
Chocolate chip cookies have been a favorite since childhood. The classic brown sugar and butter combination makes a warm and delicious chocolate cookie that is perfect to dip in a tall glass of milk.
