How The Cookie Crumbled


 Everyone loves a chocolate chip cookie, right?! But not everyone knows where they came from. Ruth Wakefield, chef, entrepreneur, restaurateur, and cookbook author invented this beloved sweet treat. But just how did she do it?! Would you believe the chocolate chip cookie occurred by accident? A recipe mistake even?

Credit is given where credit is due, Ruth DID create the famous cookie; but no one can agree on HOW she did it! How The Cookie Crumbled shares three differently versions of the story about how Americas’s favorite dessert came to be. A story that’s great because it also reminds readers that just because a story is told doesn’t mean it’s true.
