Nestle Toll House

  World's Greatest Chocolate Chip Cookie



                           Recipe adapted from Nestle Toll House

Ingredients
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup Butter (softened) and 1 cup Crisco Shortening
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 cups  NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • Add  1/2 cup M&M for color (optional) 

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

PAN COOKIE VARIATION: Grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Prepare dough as above. Spread into prepared pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack. Makes 4 dozen bars.

SLICE AND BAKE COOKIE VARIATION:
PREPARE
dough as above. Divide in half; wrap in waxed paper. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Shape each half into 15-inch log; wrap in wax paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.* Preheat oven to 375° F. Cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices; place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
 
I use a Pampered Chef  Medium Scoop, this makes it super easy and the cookies are all the same shape. 

FOR HIGH ALTITUDE BAKING (5,200 feet): Increase flour to 2 1/2 cups. Add 2 teaspoons water with flour and reduce both granulated sugar and brown sugar to 2/3 cup each. Bake drop cookies for 8 to 10 minutes and pan cookie for 17 to 19 minutes.

* May be stored in refrigerator for up to 1 week or in freezer for up to 8 weeks.



    My favorite cookie is and will always be Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie. Today I had to get my cookie fix and needed to double the recipe. Well, if I was going to share with family and friends one batch wouldn't be enough. So, I was making sure I had all the ingredients when I realized I was short 1 cup of butter, no problem I have made other cookies with shortening why not give it a try. What is the worse thing that could happen? Well, I love them! I will put this modified or should I called it Rhondified recipe in my Recipe Box.
