Chocolate Chip Cookies
OK, remember that Friends episode when all Monica wanted from Phoebe for her wedding gift was Phoebe’s grandmothers chocolate chip cookie recipe? In the end, it was actually the recipe for Nestle Toll House. Well, for my family, the Nestle Toll House recipe for chocolate chip cookies, is the best.
I’m sure that there are others who would argue better recipes exist. But, I have actually been using this recipe for about 20 plus years, and it hasn’t failed me yet. So pour yourself a nice cold glass of milk, get your favorite book, and enjoy a nice, warm, chocolate chip cookie.
Please be sure to read the recipe AND the notes before starting.

- 2 sticks butter

- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375•
- Sift together: flour, baking soda, and salt
- Cream butter and sugars (cream until mixture is light and fluffy)

- Drop by spoonful onto a greased or parchment paper lined baking sheet
- Bake for about 9-11 minutes or edges are golden brown
- Cool and enjoy!
- Feeling a little nutty? Add some nuts (pecans are our favorite). Just stir in 1 cup of chopped nuts to batter (after chocolate chips).
- When making these cookies, I use a red #24 scoop. Which scoops about 2.5 tbsp. of dough. This yields me about 20 cookies per recipe. This also means that I have to cook mine for longer than 9-11 minutes. Obviously if your scoops are smaller, you will yield more cookies & have a shorter cooking time.
