The invention of chocolate chip cookies is often credited to Ruth Wakefield. With her husband, Wakefield ran the Tollhouse Inn in Massachusetts, where she came up with the recipe in 1937.
The common story goes that Wakefield, who often made food for her guests, decided to make a chocolate butter cookie but didn’t have enough chocolate bars to produce one. Instead she chopped up the bars and added them to the butter cookie recipe.
