This is the recipe right off the bag. I like this recipe better than Toll House recipe because the mix seems less sugary tasting so the flavor of the chips stands out.
- 2 1⁄4 cups unsifted flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 1 (11 1/2 ounce) bag Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup walnuts (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- Stir flour with baking soda and salt, set aside.

These are the only chocolate chip cookies I make anymore. It really does make a difference to buy the good chocolate. Sometimes I only make a half batch. Perfection.
Great recipe! My cookies weren't flat! I used pecans and a mix of Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips and bittersweet chocolate chips. Everyone loved these!
Wonderful, chewy, and buttery chocolate chip cookies!!! I used Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips and the recipe is on the back of that bag as well using the milk chocolate chips. I cut this recipe in half and it worked just fine. Baked for about 7 1/2 to 8 minutes as they started to brown around the edges then. Love Ghirardelli, thanks for posting!!!!!
