Description

The original Toll House Cookie recipe from the back of the bag! This is the chocolate chip cookie recipe we grew up making; they are perfect!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels (12 ounce package)
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  2. In a medium bowl add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine and set aside.
  3. In a second bowl add the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Beat together until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes (you can beat them by hand, with an electric hand mixer, or with a stand mixer).
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Add the vanilla and beat to combine.
  6. Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
  7. Stir in the morsels and the nuts.
  8. Drop a heaping tablespoon of dough onto your baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between each cookie.
  9. Bake for 9 to 11 minute or until golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for 2 minutes after baking. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Notes

  • If you are omitting the nuts add an additional 2 tablespoons of flour to the dough.
  • I liked my cookies that were a little bigger than my normal cookie scoop (1 tablespoon), so I recommend making your cookie dough balls a heaping tablespoons and baking them for 11 minutes. They were perfect!
  • Store leftover cookies in a closed container or in the freezer for much longer.
