Basic Chocolate Chip Cookies from Tollhouse

I like to be fancy, make new and exciting recipes, wow friends, family, and coworkers with new and spectacular culinary masterpieces. I also like your everyday pleasures- like chocolate chip cookies. Not cake cookies, not white chocolate with fancy vanilla bean paste, not enhanced with caramel, macadamia nuts or frosting.

Just plain ol chocolate chip cookies with the recipe from Tollhouse. Pair it with a cold glass of milk and you have yourself a little slice of heaven right there!


Chocolate Chip Cookies
From Tollhouse (Below is the recipe halved.)

  • 2 C. Flour
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 C. (1 Stick) Butter, softened
  • 1/3 C. White Sugar
  • 1/3 C. Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 1+ C. Chocolate Chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Beat together the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl or stand mixer on medium speed.
  3. Add in the egg and blend until smooth.
  4. Beat in the dry ingredients on low-medium speed, again until smooth.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips gently.
  6. Drop the batter onto a non-stick cookie sheet by the spoonful. Leave a little space between the balls- or they will cook together into a giant cookies! (Mmmmmm, giant cookie...)
  7. Bake for around 10 minutes until they are golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and let sit on the sheet for a couple of minutes. Then remove to a cooling rack. Attempt to not eat them until at least slightly cooled!
