Internaltional Food Feast - American Toll House Cookies

American Toll house cookies2



Disasters are always common when it comes to cooking. But one such disaster that turned to be the most favorite invention - The Chocolate Chip Cookies. :)

The famous chocolate chip cookies was a accidental invention by Ruth Wakefield who owned the popular restaurant called the Toll house inn at Massachusetts, United States.

Wakefield was an expert in making chocolate cookies and on one fine day when she was running out of baker's chocolate she substituted for it broken pieces of semi-sweet chocolate from Nestle, thinking that it would melt and mix into the batter. It clearly did not, and the chocolate chip cookie was born. Wakefield sold the recipe to Nestle in exchange for a lifetime supply of chocolate chips. :)

One other note of history says that the head cook of the Toll house inn, Boucher said that the vibrations from a large Hobart electric mixer dislodged bars of Nestle's chocolate stored on the shelf above the mixer so they fell into the sugar cookie dough it was mixing, then broke them up and mixed the pieces into it. He claimed to have overcome Wakefield's impulse to discard the dough as too badly ruined to waste effort baking them, leading to the discovery of the popular combination.

What so ever, I love chocolate chip cookies too much that I praise the accident :)



Ingredients:

All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Soda-bicarbonate - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 1/3 cup
Chocolate chips - why measure?? as much as you like ;)
Peanuts(unsalted but roasted) - 50 gms
Eggs - 2

Method:

Put the eggs and sugar in a bowl and beat till the mixture becomes pale brown.

Sift the flour and soda bicarbonate. Pour over the egg sugar mixture and mix it well.

Add butter, peanuts and chocolate chips to it and stir to mix together.

Scoop out the cookies mixture with a spoon and roll into a ball with your hands and place on greased tray at least 5 cms. apart. Flatten the balls with your hands to make round shape.

Preheat the oven at 200 degree Celsius.

Bake the cookies at 200 degree Celsius for 10-15 min, until lightly browned. (Time subjected to your oven)

Place on wire rack to cool for 5 min.

Chocolate chip cookies is ready to eat. :) Serve it with tea/coffee. :)

Enjoy making and enjoy eating :)

Kalash said...

Hey, Can we substitute the eggs with something else???

Nithya said...

@Kalash - replace the eggs with half tsp of baking powder. It will still taste good. These cookies are a little soft. If you skip the eggs they will turn out to be crispy. Thats the difference. However you make it, it will be good :)
