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.[This chocolate chip cookie recipe was taken from the Toll House ® Heritage Cookbook, A collection of favorite dessert recipes ©1980]
