Original Toll House Cookies

Original Toll House Cookies are, by far, one of the best tasting chocolate chip cookie recipes we have ever tried and I’d be remiss if I didn’t include these famous and delicious cookies here on this website.

Ruth Wakefield may have created the Toll House recipe by accident, but the cookies are certainly delicious...and have become quite famous. Follow our special recipe and bake your own original toll house cookies.

Quick Prep:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Grease cookie sheets and set aside.

Your Cookie Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ cups unsifted flour

  • 1-teaspoon baking soda

  • 1-teaspoon salt

  • 1-cup butter, softened

  • ¾ cup sugar

  • ¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar

  • 1-teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 12-ounce package (2 cups) Nestle Semi-Sweet Real Chocolate Morsels

  • 1 cup chopped nuts (personally, I think these are optional)

Mix Your Cookie Batter

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

In a mixing bowl (I use my Kitchen Aid mixing bowl), combine softened butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract.

Beat the mixture until it has a creamy consistency. Beat in the eggs. Gradually add the dry flour mixture and mix well.

Fold the Nestle Semi-Sweet Real Chocolate Morsels and nuts (if desired) into the cookie batter.

Drop cookies by rounded teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

Yield: 100 2-inch cookies

And a Few Extra Thoughts...

We’ve used Nestle chocolate chips and we have used store brand chocolate chips for this recipe. Both taste fantastic, but if cost is a concern, buying the store brand will save you a bit and the taste won’t be any different.

We don’t add the nuts to the batter because we know a lot of people who are allergic to nuts. You could add one of the following substitutions for the nuts or just leave them out altogether.

Substitutions for nuts:

  • 2 cups raisins

  • 2 cups dates, chopped

  • 1 cup peanut butter

If you prefer larger cookies, simply drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto cookie sheets and press each into a 3-inch circle. Bake a bit longer at 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
