Vegan chocolate chips cookies

Written by Veronica Lavenia

Chocolate chips cookies are, probably, the world’s most popular cookie and one of the most beloved in every latitude. As happened with many desserts that later became iconic, chocolate chips cookies were created by chance by the skilled hands of Ruth Graves Wakefield in 1937. I love the history of the chocolate chips cookies. Once in a while I reread, fascinated by the atmosphere of America in the thirties. After all, through food we can start to know and understand the culture of a people through its cuisine. With a cookie that has a round golden form with a chocolate scent, it is easy to be charmed.
