This is Ruth Wakefield`s original recipe from the 1930s that revolutionized the U.S. by baking the first cookie containing chocolate chips . And since then it has been a winner, and countless variations of this recipe has spread to every corner of the world. There is not a Chinese or Norwegian who don`t know what a cookie are.
I just love cookies and have tested a lot idea`s and recipes, and never tire.

The chocolate pakcage advertise that this dough makes 5 dozen cookies.
I like my cookies large so I used my ice cream scoop and scooped 3.5 oz ( 100 gr) cookie dough onto a baking tray lined with baking paper :
15 jumbo size cookies
Bake for 13 – 14 minutes.
My next cookie dough I also used my ice cream scoop, and devided the scooped cookie dough into 2 cookies 1.5 oz ( 50 gr) and dropped onto a baking tray lined with baking paper:
30 large cookies
Bake for 9 – 10 minutes
Transfer the cookies on to a wire rack to cool and enjoy !

This is one of the histories that verses about how the chocolate chip cookies was born !
They say Ruth regularly made chocolate cookies using bakers chocolate, but one day she ran out and only had access to a nestle semi sweet chocolate so she broke the bar into pieces and mixed it into the batter thinking it would melt and mix with it. And of course the chocolate pieces did not mixed like the bakers chocolate and the nestle toll house chocolate chip cookie was born.
Ruth Wakefield then sold the recipe to Nestle in exchange for a lifetime supply of chocolate chips. Nestle has since printed the recipe on the back of every bag of chocolate chips they have sold in North America with one small variation which is the option of using margarine over butter.
They are still popular and are baked all over the world…
