Better Than Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies!

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Jen O.

I found this recipe among my grandmother's many, many cookie recipes and with a couple of minor changes, everyone says these are much better than the ones I usually make (those being the chocolate chip cookies straight off the back of the Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip bag!) You'll absolutely love them!

Very good. I needed a recipe that did not call for shortning, as I was out and wanted to only use 1 stick of butter without having to half the recipe. This was a great choice. We did not use the coffee as they were for my 10 yr olds classmates. I also did not spray the pans. Next time we will use less chips, 12 oz was a little too full for us. Overall a great chewy cookie, turned out very nice.
