Original Toll House Cookies


This recipe, of course comes from Nestle. It seems that no matter how many chocolate chip cookie recipes I try I always come back to these. They are my favorite and also the favorite of my youngest son. I love the flavor and texture of these cookies. I'm sure everyone reading this has made these many times but the recipe is worth repeating because they are sooo good!!
I also wanted to thank Katherine of http://www.smokeymountaincafe.blogspot.com/ for giving me several blog awards!! They are my first ones and I am thrilled!! Thanks so much Katherine!

Oh, I know exactly what you mean! I didn't even attempt to change from my CCC recipe (which is about or exactly the same as Nestle Tollhouse), because it's that good! I could really use some of your cookies now! :)

For years one of my friends claimed her grandmother made the best chocolate cookies ever and they really were. We finally got her to give up her secret, it was the Tollhouse recipe. So great!!
