American cookies appeared back in the 30s of the last century. By the way, the author of this confectionery masterpiece was not an eminent pastry chef, as you might think. Baking was invented by the owner of a small hotel in America, which was filled up by Ruth Wakefield. The guests liked the cookies interspersed with chocolate pieces, and since then, delicious pastries have been pleasing to both kids and adults.

Moreover, all of them are ordinary, they can always be found in the culinary storerooms of every hostess. It is worth noting that in the classic version of the preparation of American cookies, chocolate chips are used as an addition to the dough. We replaced this ingredient with a regular chocolate bar. This substitution will have little to no effect on the taste of the finished product, and our American Chocolate Chip Cookies will also turn out great. It would be nice to use cane sugar in the recipe, and not the usual beet sugar for us. But if this kind of sweet ingredient is missing, it doesn’t matter either. And a little more about one ingredient used - butter. By the time the recipe is implemented, it should be in a soft state. Take care of the structure of the oil in advance, just take it out of the refrigerator and let it come back to normal at room temperature. From kitchen utensils, take a convenient, proportionate container (cup, bowl), a whisk, you will need a baking sheet and baking paper, as well as an ordinary soup spoon.
