They don’t mind this beautiful legend, but they have their own opinion. They say Ruth was a talented baker and there was simply no way she could have had anything missing from her kitchen. She added the chocolate chips for a reason. So, she did it deliberately. Ruth herself is said to have let it slip and told people close to her. Anyway, the biscuits have become a classic, and not only in the USA.
Now on to baking, and before that, some important tips:
To make the perfect biscuit
Use butter, not margarine. This will give you a loose and delicate texture.
Do not use bar chocolate, but use chunky chocolate. They have a more pronounced and fuller flavour
