Chocolate Chip Cookies

Well chocolate chip cookies are my ALL TIME FAVORITE and I have searched literally high and low for the BEST recipe out there. Believe it or not, I have even PAID for recipes that didn't turn out "just right" Well I decided to go back to a classic and guess what? IT'S THE BEST! It's the original Nestle Toll House recipe. You've gotta try these, they are addicting. If your feeling especially sinful, serve them warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!!!

2 1/4 c. all purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1 c. (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened (Instead of this I use 1 cup of the butter flavored Crisco, tastes much better)

3/4 c. sugar

3-4 c. packed brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 large eggs

2 cups (12 oz. pkg) Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels

1 c. chopped nuts, optional (I always use walnuts, when I want nuts in mine)

1.Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

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

2.Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla in a large mixer bowl, until creamy.

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

4.Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts

5.Drop by rounded spoonfuls on baking sheets.

6.Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown

7. Move onto racks to cool, or serve immediately with vanilla ice cream.

Hi Andrea, I just found your recipe blog! Everything looks SO tasty. I just wanted to give you a suggestion for the Toll-House Cookies...get some small/mini skillets and cook about three clumps of cookie dough in each, then serve them with ice-cream and hot fudge...seriously TO DIE FOR!
