Chocolate Chip Cookies

My oven and I have been at odds over chocolate chip cookies for 9 months now.  We moved into a new home and this oven has made me work for these golden brown beauties.  Today, we are finally at terms after a few temperature adjustments and some sweet sugar talking on my part to my oven.  I should name the thing!
I like to use the original Tollhouse Cookie Recipe.
*Have you all seen the show Friends?  I love the episode where Phoebe is trying to figure out her great grandmothers cookie recipe. It is just too funny! A little fun fact about me (Joyful Momma):  I can make a batch of these cookies by memory in the 6 minutes it takes to preheat my oven.  I know…’s an impressive skill.

Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies

Table of Contents

  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter-flavored Crisco
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

PREHEAT oven to 375° F. COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter flavored Crisco, 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. 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.


  1. Any tips or suggestions on these cookies? We just moved to Montana from Corpus Christi, Texas, and I had just perfected them there! I've made them once here, but they did not turn out so well. 🙁 This is the same recipe I use, and in Corpus, I cooked them for 10 minutes at 350, but that didn't work here. What changes should I make? Thanks!!

  2. I find that if I use other kinds of chocolate chips, besides Nestle's.. they tend to be a lot better tasting. 😉 Trader Joe's has GREAT chocolate chips, for instance, or even Hershey's, they don't taste waxy and gross like Nestle's. It just makes for a better cookie.
