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.


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 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)

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.

  2. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt into a small bowl.

  3. In a large bowl and using an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugars, and vanilla extract.

  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Make sure to beat well after each addition.

  5. Beat in the sifted ingredients until just blended.

  6. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.

  7. Drop the dough by 1/4 cup portions about 3 inches apart on un-greased cookie sheets. 

  8. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges.

  9. Set the cookie sheets on wire racks to cool for 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer the cookies to the racks to cool completely. 

  10. Serve with milk and enjoy!
