Original Nestle's Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Ruth Graves Wakefield of Massachusetts, invented the chocolate chip cookie in 1938. This is the original recipe she made. The name of the cookie was altered a bit over the years, and is now formally called "Nestle's Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie". Other than the name, the recipe is the same as it was in 1938, when Ruth first made it.
