We probably all grew up on chocolate chip cookies. And there's a pretty good chance that if you did grow up eating homemade chocolate chip cookies, that they were of the Tollhouse variety. I'll be honest with you, it's still my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. Great warm out of the oven. Or even unbaked....raw cookie dough is pretty awesome, if you ask me.
And as good as these cookies are on their own, stay tuned in the near future for a little riff on the "plain old" chocolate chip cookie...
Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Straight from the Toll House Semi-Sweet Morsels Bag)
2 1/4 cups of flour (all-purpose)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar (granulated sugar)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12 oz package) Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
Beat butter, both sugars, 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.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets (I used parchment paper-lined baking sheets)
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown
Let cool on baking sheets.
