Today’s recipe takes us directly across the ocean cookies are after all a symbol of American pastry. This recipe like the vast majority of traditional recipe has a backstory. American biscuits appear to have been made for the first time around the 1930s when Ruth Wakefield entertained guests at the “Toll House Inn”where she worked. After using the traditional chocolate for this type of preparation he decided to use a chopped chocolate bar assuming that the chocolate would melt during cooking.
However as expected the chocolate did not melt during cooking but the restaurant’s guests greatly appreciated the “improved” version which quickly became a real success. These biscuits have a crumbly texture and a “buttery” flavor that obviously combines with the sweetness of chocolate chips, making them a perfect combination for a sweet snack or a super delicious breakfast.
