Nestle Toll House Chocolate
Cookies & Bars
|I don't think that the Nestle
company won't mind my putting their Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie
recipe on my web site as it seems to be a staple of most households - it's
all over the web on recipe sites everywhere, so why am I putting it on
mine as well? I know where to find it in a hurry! Gone are the days when I
can comfortably read the fine print on the back of the chocolate chip
package, so I'll just keep track of it here. :-)
Note: the original recipe calls
for butter - I don't recommend using margarine for anything, but
particularly not for cookies. Use real vanilla, not imitation extract.
And, the size of the eggs is important - use large, not medium or
extra-large. I used to leave the nuts out, but I've grown to prefer
these cookies with chopped pecans.
|2 1/4 cups
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-ounce package) Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts
|Heat oven to 375°.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated
sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large bowl until creamy. Add
eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in
flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded Tablespoon onto
ungreased baking sheets.
|Bake for 9-11 minutes or
until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire
racks to cool completely.
