Everybody at least once in their lives should bake chocolate chip cookies. They are amazingly delicious and juicy, simple to make and absolutely silly. Silly, because they look like little squashed flying saucers, which had a tuff landing onto your plate. Chocolate chip cookies are all about balancing sweetness from white and brown sugar with softness of vanilla and butter. The original recipe was invented by Ruth Wakefield from Massachusetts. Nobody knows exactly how she came up with this recipe, but it absolutely reshaped the cookie baking world forever. Next year this iconic American recipe will hit its 80th anniversary, so if you have never made it, hurry up!
