Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies

Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies

These sweet, buttery, chocolaty disks of deliciousness are my favorite chocolate chip cookie. They're chewy in the center and crunchy on the edges and are darn near perfect.

This recipe is adapted from the Original Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe that is posted on Nestle's Very Best Baking website:

Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 c (295 g) all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 c butter (room temperature)
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c brown sugar (packed)
2 large eggs (room temperature)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 375°.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. In a medium bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs to the sugar mixture one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla.

4. Gradually beat the flour mixture into the sugar mixture until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.

5. Drop rounded tablespoons of the cookie dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown.
Notes:
  • These cookies will stay fresh for about a week in an airtight container.
  • You can make the cookie dough a day or two ahead of time, just keep it tightly wrapped and in the fridge until you are ready to bake.
  • The cookie dough also freezes well.
  • These cookies are very sturdy and are well suited for sending through the mail.
  • You can also bake the finished cookie dough in lightly greased 9" x 13" baking dish for 25 to 30 minutes to make cookie bars! Just be sure to cut the bars while they are still warm.
