In my opinion (not that it matters), there's nothing that warms your heart more than a chocolate chip cookie.

Stressful day at work? Easy fix: chocolate chip cookie and a glass of milk.

Spill coffee on your dress on the way to a wedding? Easy fix: chocolate chip cookie and a Tide pen.

Bad breakup? Not such an easy fix, but a chocolate chip cookie and a bottle of wine should help.

Anyway, everyone who likes to bake has a chocolate chip cookie recipe that they swear by. Me? It's Nestle Toll House's original chocolate chip cookie recipe. It's the one my mom has made FOREVER (and the one that you find on the back of the Nestle chocolate chip bags)!

So sit back, enjoy Friday (finally!), and BAKE YOURSELF A DAMN COOKIE. You deserve it.

Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie

Makes 60 Cookies
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 2 cups (12-oz.) Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (I don't like these little buggers in my cookies, so I leave them out, but do as you wish!)


PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. 

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
