The best chocolate chip cookie ever created was created at a restaurant called Toll House. This is the Original Nestle Toll House Cookie Recipe and cannot be beat.
2 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Butter (softened)
3/4 cups Granulated Sugar
3/4 cups Brown Sugar (firmly packed)
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 Large Eggs
2 cups Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels (12-oz pkg)
1 cup Nuts (chopped, optional)
In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside
In a mixer, beat together butter, vanilla, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat until creamy and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat for a couple a minute or two until fluffy.
Slowly add the flour and mix until fully incorporated.
Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts (optional).
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown (do not overcook or the cookies will get dry and hard). Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, and then remove and place on wire racks to cool. Serve warm with a cold glass of MILK.
