Cookie Monster

Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!
Fun fact:
"Ever wonder how the chocolate chip cookie came to be? Legend has it that it was created in the 1930s by Ruth Wakefield at the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Mass. Wakefield apparently decided to add a few bits of chopped chocolate to a batch of butter cookie dough, expecting the chocolate to melt into the cookies as they baked. To her surprise, the chocolate held its shape and America's favorite cookie was born." (Source)
In case you are ever one Baked-Goods Jeopardy you might need to know that.  Now go get a cookie and celebrate!
