Original Nestle® Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is complete and utter theft of intellectual property, I know. But, for me, this is the ONLY chocolate chip cookie. This is The Standard of Chocolate Chip Cookies. My wife makes the best chocolate chip cookies, and this is the recipe, and the brand of chocolate chips, which she uses.
- 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 ounces) NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
- 1 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 375° Fahrenheit.
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 coool completely.
