Happy Little Accidents: Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!
At one point in time the chocolate chip cookie that we all know and love today ceased to exist, that is until 1938 when Ruth Graves Wakefield made a happy little accident and created the first chocolate chip cookie. Her intention was originally to made a chocolate cookie however, she was missing a crucial element - baking chocolate. Wakefield improvised and instead chopped up a semi-sweet chocolate bar to mix into the recipe. What she happened upon was the birth of the chocolate chip cookie. Over the years the chocolate chip cookie's popularity skyrocketed. What started as an accident rapidly spread through homes to mass production to other parts of the world. This rise has lead to the chocolate chip cookie becoming quite the American staple.
