The American Chocolate Chip Cookie was invented by a lady Ruth Wakefield. She was Butter Drop Do cookies, preparing and noticed that she had no bakers chocolate and took a piece of chocolate that Nestle cut them into small pieces. Bakers chocolate melts completely, but the chopped chocolate into small pieces sat in the dough, and so was born the cookie.
Ruth Wakefield Nestle chocolate was used for this recipe she made an agreement with Nestle. She would give her life to get free chocolate and Nestle could print her recipe for the cookie on their packaging.
