There's a little ditty they're singing in the city..

A Youtube from one of your own!

Chocolate chip cookies were created in 1933 because innkeeper Ruth Wakefield was running late and needed to speed up the process of making cookies. Three years before, she and her husband had bought the Toll House Inn (built in 1709 in Whitman, Massachusettes) and opened a restaurant. That fateful day, she was running late; to save time, she decided that rather than melt chocolate before mixing it into the batter she would simply chop up the hard chocolate and let the bits melt as the cookies baked. The cookies were a huge hit with her customers. At first, Mrs. Wakefield called them chocolate crunch cookies. Later she changed the name to Toll House cookies.
