Chocolate Chip Cookies

#Chocolate #Chip @Cookies

Interestingly enough one of America’s Favorite treats, originated in 1937, when a BRILLIANT lady named Ruth Graves Wakefield decided to add bits of diced up chocolate to her batch of cookies. Needless to say her beloved NEW recipe won over many hearts, and thus began a wonderful relation between Ruth and Nestlé ! The Nestlé brand Toll House cookies is named for the Toll House Inn in the town of Whitman, Massachusetts that Ruth resided at back in 1939.

These Chocolate Chip cookies are made with Semi Sweet Chocolate chips and REAL butter! They are soft and Delicious! You can freeze extra cookie dough if desired as it keeps amazingly well!
