Dessert Table Sweet: Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here's the recipe for my personal favorite: the chocolate chip cookie. I always make this Nestle recipe because I love the crispy-chewy combination of these cookies. Plus, chocolate chip cookies are such a classic that they need to make an appearance on any given dessert table.

Original NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookies
Source: Nestle
Yields approximately 40 Tbsp-sized 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. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts (I omitted)

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.

* May be stored in refrigerator for up to 1 week or in freezer for up to 8 weeks.
