Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies (Ca 1948)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Countrywife

This is from the re-print of the Toll House 1948 cookbook, originally called Chocolate Crunch Cookies. Ruth Graves Wakefield had some wonderful recipes. This is the latest in my search for her original recipe that was the first chocolate chip cookie.

These were just OK. Nothing special, just your basic chocolate chip cookie. I didn't think they had much taste.
