Ingredients Needed for Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies: the Nestle Tollhouse Recipe
- brown sugar
- baking soda
- semi-sweet chocolate chips
Recipe Notes & Tips
- It’s really important to measure the flour with the “scoop and sweep” method. Otherwise you WILL have too much flour in the cookies and they WILL be too dense (trust me, I know 😁). Simply scoop out the flour in a measuring cup, but instead of pressing it to the side of the container to flatten it out in the cup, sweep the excess flour off the top and level it out by scraping a knife across the measuring cup.
- This is a great base cookie recipe to keep in your back pocket and customize with any kinds of mix-ins that you like. Try adding M&MS next time!

- Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
- Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges (don't over-bake though, if the tops of the cookies are brown, you've probably baked them too long!).
