Today is Chocolate Chip Biscuit/Cookie Day

Chocolate chip Cookies on trayNow we all like a biscuit / cookie and as we chomp into the damn thing bite back no matter ones resolution to only have one, maybe two. After that first bite one wants to eat more and dunk them is some hot beverage. I see you know the feeling huh! The Klutz in the Kitchen embarked an exhaustive Internet research project to discover the history of now famous The Chocolate Chip Cookie, which has invaded the palettes of children of all ages in the global village today. The Klutz would like to thank The Nibble for supplying the story that follows.

The History Of The Chocolate Chip Cookie

Chocolate chip cookie-lovers: Where would we be if it weren’t for Ruth Graves Wakefield (1903-1977), a 1930s-era Massachusetts innkeeper? Without Ruth there would be no chocolate chip cookies and by extension, no peanut butter chip cookies or other flavours of chips, no chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, no Chipwich. But why dwell on those what-if horrors? Let’s look at the happy history.

Ruth Graves graduated from the Framingham State Normal School Department of Household Arts in 1924. She worked as a dietician and lectured on food.

In 1930, Kenneth and Ruth Wakefield purchased a historic Cape Cod-style inn, the Toll House, on the outskirts of Whitman, Massachusetts, halfway between Boston and New Bedford. Originally constructed in 1709, the house had served as a stop for travellers in Colonial times: they paid their road toll, changed horses and dined. Over 200 years later, the Wakefields opened a lodge on the premises, the Toll House Inn. They served traditional Colonial fare. Ruth did the baking, and her desserts were very popular.

One day in 1937, while preparing a batch of Butter Drop Do cookies, a colonial brown sugar cookie recipe, Ruth found that she did not have the baker’s chocolate required, and instead chopped a bar of Nestlé Semi-Sweet Chocolate into tiny pieces. She added them to the dough, expecting them to melt during baking; instead, the chocolate held its shape and softened to a creamy texture. The new cookies became very popular at the Inn; Ruth’s recipe was published in newspapers throughout New England, and sales of Nestlé’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar skyrocketed.

Ruth eventually approached Nestlé and reached an agreement that allowed Nestlé to print what would become known as the Toll House Cookie recipe on the wrapper of the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar (part of the agreement included supplying Ruth with all of the chocolate she could use for the rest of her life). As the recipe continued to grow in popularity, Nestlé began to score the chocolate bar and packaged it with a special chopper for easy cutting into small morsels. In 1939, they introduced Nestlé Toll House Real Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels. Nestlé claims that the Toll House is the most popular cookie of all time. Who are we to disagree?

And the recipe was originally called Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookies, as the morsels, or chips, came later.

The After Story

Officially, chocolate chip cookies are the state cookie of Massachusetts, where they were invented, and Pennsylvania, home to Hershey’s, Nestlé’s chief competitor in the chocolate morsel business. Alas, you can’t visit the Toll House Inn today. In 1966, Kenneth and Ruth sold it and retired to Duxbury, Massachusetts. The new owners turned the building into a nightclub. In 1970, it was sold again, to the Saccone family, who restored the original Toll House Inn and Restaurant. Unfortunately, on New Year’s Eve 1984, the old building caught fire and was destroyed.

Now that you know the history of this tasty little morsel, you going to head to your local purveyor of all things you diet instructor warned you against. Go one you know you want that little beastie of a Chocolate Chip Cookie new, so go get some and enjoy. J
