the nytimes writes about the search for champion chocolate chip cookies. a delicious quest. raw dough or chewy centered or crispy crunch, i'll take these cooies any way i can get them.
best of all, this article's first paragraphs feature my hometown hero Ruth Wakefield, who invented this perfect cookie in whitman, mass. her recipe is published on the back of every pack of Toll House chocolate chips.
and NOW i find out that she also published a cookbook: toll house tried and true recipes. yup, she's a woman after my hometown heart.
