How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookies

While necessity may be the mother of invention, some of life's best treats were stumbled upon quite by accident. Such is the case with chocolate chip cookies--indescribably delectable treats that have been a mainstay in baking for generations. When Ruth Wakefield cooked up the first batch in 1930, she was actually trying to make chocolate cookies and was substituting bits of semi-sweet chocolate for the baking chocolate, thinking the chips would melt down in the batter. Fortunately for cookie lovers, they didn't, and expert and novice chefs alike have been trying to perfect the art of how to make chocolate chip cookies ever since.
