Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are SOOOO good.  They are rich and gooey, if you bake them the correct amount of time.  This is the traditional Nestle Tollhouse recipe.  I LOVED getting a chocolate chip cookie sandwich on Main Street in Disney World.  These make excellent CCC sandwiches, but they are good out of the oven with a glass of milk, too.
  • 2 ¼ C. all-purpose flour
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 C. (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • ¾ C. granulated sugar
  • ¾ C. packed brown sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 C. (12 oz. pkg) Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 C. chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In a small bowl, combine the sifted flour, baking soda, and salt
  3. In a large bowl, beat the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla with a hand mixer
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time and continue to beat
  5. Add the flour mixture about ½ C. at a time
  6. Stir in the morsels and nuts
  7. Scoop the cookie dough on a cookie sheet
  8. Bake for 9 minutes
  9. Remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and allow to cool on a baking rack for 2 minutes before serving
Tips and Tricks:
  • I use a 1 ½ inch scoop to make a 3 inch cookie.
  • I use parchment paper on my cookie sheets.
  • If you want your cookies gooey, you need to remove them before they start to brown.  If you like them more on the crispy side, let them brown before removing them.
