Chocolate chip cookies are a true American delicacy: at the Toll House restaurant near Boston, Ruth Wakefield invented the very first "toll house" cookies with chopped-up bits of a Nestle's chocolate bar.
Originally inspired by a contest to find the best cookies in the nation, The 47 Best Chocolate Chip Cookies in the World spans the kitchens of America from Muskegon, Michigan, to Costa Mesa, California--and includes delectable tidbits of cookie lore (did you know that Napoleon always carried chocolate into battle with him for quick energy?) The only thing better than this book is a box of chocolate chip cookies!
