What is so interesting about so many chocolate chip cookie recipes is how they have been revised to take out the baking POWDER out of the recipe, and how they have been modified to fit the 'harried' housewife (like me!). Nestle, perhaps in an attempt to sell more chips or make it 'easier' on the cook, adapted the recipe to where there is no 'rest' period for the dough. Originally, the Toll House cookie dough was supposed to be refrigerated 24 hours. Why? To let the egg 'soak' into the batter. It produces a superior cookie, but if you let it sit for 36 hours, it is truly terrific. Try it! You'll see a better looking cookie as well as a great taste.
