10 Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes

We can all agree that chocolate chip cookies are the best invention since ice cream cones; and ever since their creation in the 1930’s chocolate chip cookies have been evolving and diversifying.

Let’s take a small trip to the museum of cooking history and make a left turn to enter the dessert wing. Ok class, so here in front of us we have the statue of the late Ruth Wakefield, the inventor of the chocolate chip cookie. Her invention was a pure hazardous act. She and her husband owned a small lodge. One day, as she was whipping up a batch of cookies, she ran out of bakery chocolate and thought she would use Nestle’s semi-sweet chocolate. As she was putting them in, she expected the chips to melt and to end up with chocolate cookies. To her great surprise, the cookies came out of the oven golden brown with the perfectly chocolaty chocolate pieces intact. Thus, the famous Nestle Toll House partnership was established. Ruth Wakefield was given a lifetime supply of chocolate chips and her recipe was printed on the back of the chocolate chip bag for all eternity.

Mrs. Wakefield was the first to create a chocolate chip cookie recipe. However, many after her have attempted to create the best ever chocolate chip cookie, let’s call them cookie pioneers. This week, we have for you a selection of rebellious chocolate chip cookies that have chosen to leave the traditional cookie to Ruth.
