The invention of the cookie dates back to 1938 by the Americans Ruth Graves Wakefield and Sue Brides. They made the first cookie recipe while owning an inn, the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. Since then the cookie has crossed the borders of the United States to arrive in Europe and all over the world. Like many recipes from elsewhere, the Martinicans have adapted it to their local wealth. This is how we offer you this recipe for chocolate chip cookies and bananas.
