The History of Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies were invented by Ruth Graves Wakefield in the 1930s at the Toll House Inn in Massachusetts, USA. Wakefield added chopped-up pieces of Nestle semi-sweet chocolate to her cookie recipe, which she believed would melt and disperse throughout the dough, creating a chocolate cookie. Instead, the chocolate chunks remained intact, creating a new type of cookie that became very popular.

The Toll House company eventually sold pre-made chocolate chips, known as “chocolate chip cookies.” Today, they are one of the most popular types of cookies worldwide.

Tips for Making a Good Chocolate Chip Cookie

  1. Use high-quality ingredients: Use high-quality chocolate chips, butter, and vanilla extract for the best flavor.
  2. Measure accurately: Use measuring cups and spoons to ensure that you add the correct amount of each ingredient.
  3. Chill the dough: Chilling the dough for at least an hour before baking helps the cookies keep their shape and results in a chewier texture.
  4. Don’t overmix the dough: Overmixing can result in tough cookies. Mix the ingredients until just combined.
  5. Use the right temperature: Preheat your oven to the correct temperature and avoid opening the oven door while the cookies are baking to ensure even baking.
  6. Use parchment paper: Lining your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat will help prevent sticking and ensure even browning.
  7. Add extra chocolate chips: Adding a few extra chocolate chips on top of each cookie just before baking will result in a more visually appealing cookie.
  8. Experiment with add-ins: Chocolate chip cookies are great on their own, but you can also experiment with adding nuts, coconut, or other flavorings to make them your own.
