Was it Ruth Handler, who createdthe Barbie Doll and named it after herdaughter?No. How about Baby Ruth, thecandy bar that was named after eitherPresident Grover Cleveland’s daughteror Babe Ruth, depending on which ver-sion you believe?Nope. Her name was Ruth Wake-eld, and her story begins in 1930 inWhitman, Massachusetts, where sheand her husband Ken ran an inn. Theirlittle inn was originally built for travel-ers going from Boston to New Bedfordwhen it was built way back in 1709.Travelers paid a toll each time theypassed through with their horses.Ruth worked as a dietitian and “foodlecturer.” Since neither you nor I arelikely to know what a “food lecturer”is, we’ll just leave it at that.If I told you Ruth’s last name, youstill wouldn’t know her. If I told youthe name of her inn, you would knowright away who she is. So I’ll keep youin suspense for just a little while longer.In the world of TV news, this is knownas a “tease.”Ruth would often bake desserts forher guests, and one of her favorite itemswas her “Butter Drop Do” cookies. Oneday she ran out of chocolate while mak-ing a batch of these cookies, so she sub-stituted some chunks of chocolate froma chocolate bar that her friend Andrewhad recently given her.Ruth expected the chocolate chunksto melt along with the cookie doughwhen she baked them, as she wastrying to make her usual chocolatecookies. Instead, the chunks stayedhard. In the process, Ruth Wakeeldmade the rst chocolate chip cookie inhistory!The fact that the chocolate chipcookie was created by accident meansthat it has something in common withPost-It Notes, Silly Putty and IvorySoap.What was the name of the inn thatRuth and her husband ran?Earlier in the story, I mentionedthat travelers paid a toll each time theypassed through. It was called the “TollHouse” Inn. As in Nestle Toll HouseCookies.But there’s more to this story.Ruth and Andrew made a deal: Hischocolate company would print hercookie recipe on its packaging in re-turn for giving Ruth a lifetime supplyof chocolate.The full name of her friend Andrewwas Andrew Nestle. As in Nestle TollHouse Cookies!
Ruth who?
Ruth died in 1977, and the Toll House Inn burned down from a re that startedin the kitchen on New Year’s Eve 1984. The inn was not rebuilt. The site is markedwith a historical marker, and that land is now home to a Wendy’s restaurant andWalgreens pharmacy.The Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts, circa 1940.Although there are many manufac-turers of chocolate chips today, Nestléstill publishes the recipe on the backof each package of Toll House Morsels just as they did on this original pack-aging.
Ingredients neededfor 20 cookies:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into slices8 ounces NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSEDark Chocolate Baking Bars, nelychopped3 ounces unsweetened chocolate bak-ing bar, nely chopped1/2 cup all-purpose our 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt3 large eggs, at room temperature1 1/4 cups superne granulated sugar 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract2 cups (one 12-ounce package)NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-sweetChocolate Morsels1 cup NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE DarkChocolate & Mint MorselsDirections: PREHEAT oven to 350° F.Line baking sheets with parchment paper.MELT butter in a double-boiler (or stainless bowl set over – but not touch-ing – simmering water). Once butter ismelted, add dark and unsweetened bak-ing bars and stir until melted and smooth.Remove the bowl from heat and let coolslightly.SIFT our, baking powder and salttogether into a medium bowl and setaside briey.BEAT eggs in large mixer bowl untilfoamy, about 30 seconds. Increase thespeed to high and gradually add sugar,then vanilla extract. Continue beating untilthe eggs are very thick and pale yel-low, about 3 minutes. Reduce the mixer speed to medium and beat in the cooledchocolate, making sure it is completelyincorporated. Reduce the mixer speed tolow and gradually add the our mixture.Stir in the semi-sweet and dark chocolate& mint morsels by hand.SCOOP dough using a 2-inch icecream scoop onto the prepared bakingsheets, placing the dough about 1 ½inches apart.BAKE for 17 to 20 minutes or untilthe cookies are just set (centers may stillseem underdone but will rm up uponcooling). Do not over bake. Let cool righton the baking sheets.To get the full “molten” effect, servethese cookies warm!
