Chocolate chip cookies will forever be an enduring childhood favorite – not to mention an adult’s shameless vice! What follows is a time-honored Nestlé Toll House recipe. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

Things You'll Need


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.

Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl until creamy.

Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Gradually beat in flour mixture.

Stir in nuts and Nestle® Toll House® chocolate morsels.

Drop by rounded tablespoons 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.

Tips

  • For a slice-and-bake cookie variation, prepare dough as above. Divide in half; wrap in waxed paper. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Shape each half into a 15-inch log; wrap again in waxed paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices; place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Most people use walnuts for the nuts, but you can also use pecans or anything else you prefer; or you can leave out the nuts.
