August 4th National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

August 4th National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

It’s hard to believe that the chocolate chip cookie did not exist before Ruth Graves invented it in Wakefield, Mass in 1938. She and her husband owned an Inn in Wakefield called the Toll House Inn and the cookies, well they were called Toll House Cookies. People loved them and soon Nestle decided to buy out Ruth’s recipe and make it their own. It has since seemed to work out well for all concerned, particularly those that eat them! It does make me wonder though, did she get the idea and make them, or did they happen like so many inventions, by accident. We may never know, but who cares!

How to celebrate – Make some chocolate chip cookies! Buy some chocolate chip cookies. Visit the original Toll House Inn.
