Toll House cookies are clearly America's favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. This is a fan-favorite version of the original recipe and makes large, chewy-in-the-center, crisp-on-the-edges, chocolate chip cookies.

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter (soft)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup walnuts (chopped)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt into a small bowl. In a large bowl and using an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugars, and vanilla extract. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and beating well after each addition. Beat in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
  3. Drop the dough by 1/4 cup portions about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges. Set the cookie sheets on wire racks to cool for 2  to 3 minutes, then transfer the cookies to the racks to cool completely.
