The restaurant was a popular dining establishment that offered delicious home-cooked meals back in the 1930s. The popularity attached to the restaurant wasn’t only because of the tasty meals but it was also due to Ruth’s policy to offer her customers an extra helping of entrées for them to take home along with her homemade cookies as dessert.

Ruth wrote a cookbook entitled Toll House Tried and True Recipes, which came out in 1936. In it was the recipe for the “Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie”, which immediately became everyone’s favorite homemade cookie.
