Ruth Graves Wakefield’s beloved NEW recipe won over many hearts and thus began an excellent relation between Ruth and Nestlé! The Nestlé brand Toll House cookies are named for the Toll House Inn in the town of Whitman, Massachusetts, that Ruth resided at the back in 1939.

These Chocolate Chip cookies are made with Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips and REAL butter! They are soft and Delicious! You can freeze extra cookie dough if desired, as it keeps amazingly well!

 

 

Ingredients List

  • 3 ½ cups flour, sifted
  • One ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • One teaspoon salt
  • One ¼ cups real unsalted butter
  • One ¼ cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • Two large eggs, beaten
  • One tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (11.5 ounces) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips, your brand

 

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix to combine and set aside. Then cream butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together until blended.
  3. Add beaten eggs, mix thoroughly to incorporate. Add the vanilla. Place the mixer on the low-speed setting, and add in dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Do not over mix dough. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
  4. Place on a lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-16 minutes.
 

 

 

 

Tips for the recipe:

  1. Use real unsalted butter.  Not margarine. Make sure to slightly soften the butter. Do not melt the unsalted butter. It drastically changes the consistency of the cookies.

  2. Do not grease your cookie sheets.  This spreads the cookies.  Blah.

  3. Use a cookie scoop for a uniform looking cookies.

  4. Cream your sugars and butter for 2-3 minutes for a deliciously fluffy and chewy cookie. 

  5. Do not over bake.  Cookies will continue to bake a little bit once they are taken out of the oven.  I underbake them around a minute and they turn out excellent every single time.

    These come out just like you said. They are just the right amount of soft and have plenty of chocolate.
