Guys, I really love cookies. I really love sweets and sugar. And I REALLY love baking!
It’s been some time since I’ve baked, and I hold a strong belief that baking should be done year-round. I used to just bake during the Christmas season, but there’s so many great things to make in the spring and summer seasons, too.
However, I also love to bake the classics, especially Nestle’s Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies and I always get the best feedback!
Here’s what you need:
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
The recipe also calls for nuts, but… I don’t like nuts in my food. So that’s that. Also, you can use the milk chocolate morsels, too.
Put it all together:
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Put the flower, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl and set aside. Then, in a bigger bowl, toss in everything else and beat it together until creamy. The instructions say to beat in the eggs one at a time, but honestly, I didn’t care for that. I just put it in with everything else and the cookies turned out just fine. Also, I usually, take the butter, put the sticks in a bowl, and microwave them for 30 seconds. This helps it to be creamier. Once it’s all creamy (don’t over-beat it), gradually beat in the flower mixture. After that, put in your chocolate chips! To be honest, I always add a few more chocolate chips since there’s no such thing as chocolate chips.
Next, make one-inch dough balls and put them on the tray (with parchment paper)! Throw ’em in the oven for 10 minutes, and cool them on drying racks.
This recipe will make 5-6 dozen cookies 🙂
