NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
HELPFUL TIPS THAT WORK FOR ME: These never go wrong, but I find cookie recipes turn out different as far as thickness by the ingredients and temperatures you use them at. They turn out SO MUCH BETTER when you use eggs AND butter that are at room temperature. I always increase the vanilla, and you'll notice almost all other chocolate chip recipes on here have more as well because it tastes better! :) I also blend half chocolate chip&half semisweet chocolate chips. Makes a huge difference in the blend of flavors! MY SECRET: Add 1/8-1/4C andes mint chips in place of some of the cc, and everyone will beg for more!! Always hand mix recipes like this! No mixers or your cookie will be flat! My husband likes to microwave the cookies a tad & then of course eat w/a glass of milk. Now my son copies him. :) Though this is the recipe I've turned to for years, when I tried "Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie" on here & followed the advice of some reviews ...I switched. They found the secret to the biggest, chewiest cookie with the right mixture of sweetness!
NOT cool. These cookies have the worst presentation in the WORLD! SOOOOOOOOOOOOO flat!! I should have added more flour than the recipe called for. Maybe they wouldn't be so flat. The chips are elevated above the rest of the cookie. This is bad. I will NEVER make these again! Try "Best Chocolate Chip cookies" those are my all time FAVORITES! These are just not cool.
I've tried many chocolate chip cookie recipes (especially from this website) and my favorite is still the one on the back of the chocolate chip bag! This is the one I grew up with and the one that I love.
I do make one modification. I use 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening to keep them puffy.
Really good chocolate chip cookies- perfect with a glass of milk.
I did find however I needed to add about 2/3 cup of flour once everything was mixed in or it was too sticky. Really good once baked.
These cookies are delicious but turn out flat if you use butter. I used Smart Balance and they keep their shape, are better for you and taste great. I also used egg whites instead of eggs.
Classic chocolate chip cookie recipe. I leave out the nuts when I make it.
Flavor is ok, but I have gone back and tried these year after year thinking it just must be me, but these cookies are sooooooooo flat once they cool. I quite using this recipe a couple of years ago because I got tired of wasting my time and ingredients. If you like fluffy and chewy chocolate chip cookies - this is definitely NOT the recipe for you. I am still in search of the perfect cc cookie recipe!
These cookies will always be the best!! I always make mine a LITTLE different.. I used 1 crisco butter flavored stick, 2 cups of flour and no nuts.. I cook at 350 degrees and always preheat the oven with the cookie sheet inside so you start off with a warm pan!!
