Better Than Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 8 mins

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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With electric mixer, blend the butter with both sugars until fluffy.

  3. Add dry ingredients to mixture- blend well.

  7. Makes approximately 20 cookies.
  8. Enjoy!

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.

OMG! YUM! I added a large (overflowing) handful of both dried cherries and sliced almonds, and I accidentally added 3 eggs rather than one... They were still amazing even with the extra eggs.

I wasn't able to have any of the these apparently delicious cookies, but the 16 people who did all raved! Apparently they are very good. We needed a treat for tonight's church function and everyone loved them. I will try them in a few weeks when I am off of this darn diet!!!
