The Toll House Cookie Recipe is the original chocolate chip cookie. These cookies are chewy, soft, and buttery--just like grandma used to make! One bite and you'll understand why this classic recipe remains a staple for a every home baker.


  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 12 oz package Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, optional


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
    2. In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. 
    3. In a large mixing bowl with a electric mixer beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract until creamy.
    4. Add eggs, one at a time, beat well after each addition.
    5. Add flour mixture gradually.
    6. Stir in morsels and nuts.
    7. Drop 1 tablespoon scoops onto lined cookie sheet.
    8. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes and then move to cooling rack to cool completely.


  • Use an electric mixer. Beating the butter and sugar vigorously makes all the difference in the consistency of your cookies. Handheld beaters or a stand mixer makes it so easy!
  • Measure flour accurately. Use a spoon to scoop flour into your measuring cup. Then level the top with a butter knife. This measuring method is much more accurate than simply scooping your flour with a measuring cup straight out of the bag. I've got all the tips and tricks on how to measure flour.
  • Measure the dough. For equally sized cookies, use a metal cookie scoop to drop dough onto the baking sheet.
  • Bake until golden brown. Remove the cookies when the edges begin to turn golden. They may look under baked in the center, but they will continue to bake as they begin to cool on the baking sheet.
  • Chocolate. Press extra chocolate chips into the tops of the cookie dough before baking. This gives them a beautiful look, plus, MORE chocolate!
  • Storage: store cookies in airtight container at room temperature for up to one week. Or freeze cookies for up to 3 months.
