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

Makes about 20 Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 27 minutes


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


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Sift the flour, baking soda and salt into a bowl. Cream together the butter, sugars, and vanilla extract in large bowl until thoroughly mixed. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just barely blended. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Drop 1/4-cup portions of cookie dough, about 3 inches apart, on un-greased cookie sheets.

Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes, then remove to cool on wire racks.

Childhood Memories, Member barsha55

I remember making these cookies when I was only a young child, nearly 50 years ago. I'd forgotten about them for many years, when I saw this recipe, so began making them again. They don't last long as my husband & grandchildren love them!! When I made them, we put about a cup of Kelloggs Cornflakes in the mixture at the end, it gives extra crunch. Thank you for the memories from an Aussie cook.
