Chocolate Crunch Cookies!

Hi all friends!

Years and years ago my Grandma learned about the greatly loved Toll House Inn in Whitman Massachusetts. This place has the distinction of being known for the famed origin of the Chocolate Chip Cookies and those famous Toll House cookies that many of you know and love! Many thanks are owed to Ruth Wakefield who made them with loving hands.

She obtained this recipe a long time ago so now I am sharing it with you!
