The Chocolate Chip Cookie was invented by Ruth Wakefield, the owner of the Toll House Inn in Massachusetts, which was later taken over by Nestle. Made with unsalted butter and a combination of white and brown sugars, chocolate chip cookies are rich and chewy cookies with caramelized edges.

The main ingredients that go into a chocolate chip cookie recipe are flour, sugar (white and/or brown), butter or margarine, baking powder and/or baking soda, eggs (optional), vanilla and chocolate chips. However, every baker has his own custom recipe that ends up with mild variations.

By-products of chocolate chip cookies include:
Crushed chocolate chip cookies: The biscuits are crushed either with hand or by placing them in a cloth and pounding them with a hammer for a few seconds. The latter procedure tends to impart a finer crushed product than the former.
Powdered cookies: You may powder the biscuits in a dry grinder or by placing them between cloth or plastic sheets and pounding them with a hammer. They may be powdered fine or coarsely as per the recipe requirements.

Crushed chocolate chip cookies
Place the cookies on a butter paper or a rolling board and coarsely crush it with the help of a rolling pin till you get small pieces, we do not advice to do this in a mixer as it will get powdered.
