Chocolate chip cookies are one of the most famous cookies out there. That perfect blend of soft doughy goodness with rich melted chocolate sends the taste buds craving more.

Because I was making the gooey goodness, I wanted to see where the cookie actually originated from.

The creator was Ruth Wakefield. According to Nestle Toll House Story:

“One day, while preparing a batch of Butter Drop Do cookies, a favorite recipe dating back to Colonial days, Ruth cut a bar of our NESTLÉ® Semi-Sweet Chocolate into tiny bits and added them to her dough, expecting them to melt. Instead, the chocolate held its shape and softened to a delicately creamy texture.”

I love when recipes come together by accident and develop into an American favorite!

Since my children have a gluten and dairy restriction I decided to alter this recipe to fit their dietary needs. They made this recipe completely on their own. The only guidance I gave them was with reading the package. Even though it took them 30 minutes to prepare, they had the best time measuring and mixing.

These cookies turned out so well. I am so proud of them and look forward to helping them develop a life of cooking and baking gluten free and vegan.
