Toll House Cookies

Our forever go-to recipe when we're in the mood for a
chocolate chip cookie.
I'm a fancy kind of cookie girl.
Not my family.
They want chocolate chip.
Slightly crispy on the outside ~ soft on the inside.
They're fussy about their chocolate chip cookies!

Original NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

* May be stored in refrigerator for up to 1 week or in freezer for up to 8 weeks.

Mildred said...

One of my favorites, Lorraine....I'm on my way!

Tracy said...

hah, Lorraine, I just made those on Sunday night for gifts to my son's teachers and put them in bags with colorful thank you notes; never thought to take a photo though but actually Nicholas did most of the work by himself! I was so impressed with him. As a 12 year old boy, he done good!

Lorraine, did you have to go and show those now? I need to have at least three of those, they look perfect.

Sandy said...

My three guys are the same
way--they only want chocolate
chip. I like to try all kinds
but, no, they beg and beg and
I have to make these.
At least they're yummy.

Such an old faithful Tollhouse cookies!
Your photos are beautiful! I was reading some back posts and our kids got married the same summer, only we just had our second grandchild. Also was interesting I made a similar parmesan risotto recipe tonight. And lastly, I was so interested in your girls' double wedding for I have identical twin aunts and they too had a double wedding!

There is something so universally appealing about chocolate chip cookies! I just wish I had two teenagers in the house again to help eat them. Beautiful shot!

ive tried sooo many choc chip cookies recipe but none look as lovely as yours!! i love how flat and thin they are (mine tends to be fat and thick for some reasons..they dont spread!) this will be my next recipe to try :D

Cozy Home Scenes said...

I'm always surprised that more people don't use this recipe because it really is that good. Years ago when I was a child, my Mom and I made the same cookies for one of my friends after a hospital stay. A week or so later, my mom brought the family some food again, and the girl was well enough to visit at the door for a minute.

First thing she did was say those were the BEST cookies she ever had and her mom said she kept asking her to get the recipe. We told her there was no special recipe. Just buy the Toll House chips and follow the recipe on the back.

Many times I've given cookies, and am always surprised at how many people ask for the recipe and I still tell them the same thing.

If you are offering milk, I'll take some of your cookies right now!
