Chocolate Chip Cookie Trivia

Jul 1, 2009
Most popular cookies is the Chocolate Chip Cookie. Fresh out of the oven is how my husband, my kids and I like them best.

Chocolate chip cookies are called a drop cookie. Their dough traditionally has brown sugar, white sugar, butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Many variations exist of this cookie. Some can be with oatmeal, nuts, m&m's, or white chocolate. An example of a yummy variations is white chocolate and macadamia nut.

A fun dessert, a cookie-wich made by Mrs. Field is two cookies with a middle layer of frosting. Loads of sugar and loads of calories! Our local Mrs. Fields stand closed luckily for me!

A lady by the name of Ruth Graves Wakefield is the one whom made this great treat. We owe her thanks. The famous name she gave them was "Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies".

Where did the "Toll House" part come from? It was the name of the inn owned by Ruth and her husband, Kenneth Wakefield in Massachusetts.

Built on a toll road, the inn was a toll booth of sorts, a restaurant and an inn. Folks would pay tolls there like we pat tolls today.

Ruth Graves Wakefield had written a cookbook in 1940's that had her recipes in it from the years of cooking at the inn. The cookbook was called "Ruth Wakefield's Recipes:Tried and True". It became a best selling cookbook.

The Toll House Inn was sold in the 1960's. It went through some changes, was sold in the 1970's, restored to it's original form. And it burned down in the 1980's.

Ruth Graves Wakefield lived til 1977. Her grave is in Massachusetts.

Massachusetts had a proposal in 1977 for the chocolate chip cookie to be the official cookie of the state.

Billions of variations are made and eaten of this famous cookie all over the world. We should pay thanks to Mrs. Wakefield for the cookie we all love.
