YUM...what's better than fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies? Not much! My mom makes the Nestle Tollhouse Cookie Recipe and though I tried to duplicate her results, these fell flat...hers are much fluffier...must be a mom secret. However, I still got rave reviews on these from Paul because they were thin and crispy on the edges and still slightly chewy in the middle. Of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone and to these cookies, I added white chocolate chips and Heath bits.
Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies
Source: Very Best Baking
- 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-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
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 (I used 1 cup of milk chocolate AND 1 cup of white chocolate chips, 1/2 cup Heath Toffee Bits) 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 cool completely.
