Default chocolate chip cookies

I decided to try writing a test piece, and, for better or for
worse, I chose the subject of chocolate chip cookies. I
figured the facts would be easy enough to find. Hah! I get
the feeling that most of what is online was pulled out of thin
air--or folks wrote their theories as facts, or just plain
stories, and those stories have proliferated on almost all of
the sites masquerading as fact. It is easy enough now to go
back and check the supposed origins of the cookies, the base
that Ruth Wakefield was supposedly working with, and one can
see that what has been said is just plain wrong. I am hoping
to find something in her own words, but there is no precedent
in her earlier cookbooks. She also doesn't reminisce in her
later cookbooks. Ack!
