Best Toll House Cookies

September 28, 2020Teresa

Best Toll House Cookies are outrageously delicious! These fantastic cookies start with the original Toll House Cookie recipe. That recipe includes pecans! But I amped up the flavors by adding 50% more chocolate and 50% more vanilla. These cookies just pop with flavor.

My husband suffered a massive stroke in early June. Initially, all the medical staff thought he was going to die. By a miracle of God and some fantastic doctors and staff, he survived. He transferred over to inpatient rehab the end of June. John always likes me to bring in cookies for the staff whenever I can. So I whipped up a batch of these jewels the first time I came to visit him in rehab.

The staff raved over them. So many of them told him how much they enjoyed these cookies. While Toll House Cookies are pretty good anyway, they’re even better with additional chocolate chips and vanilla. I also froze the cookie dough balls about 10-15 minutes before baking so the cookies would hold their shape better. Otherwise, the cookies would flatten out like pancakes.

I get that a lot of people can’t do nuts anymore. But if you can, the pecans make these cookies even better, in my opinion. Every bite is so gob smacking good that you’ll have a lot of happy campers in your home when you make these. 🙂

Instructions
  1. Cream butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  2. Add eggs.
  3. Beat well.
  4. Combine flour, soda and salt and gradually beat into creamed mixture.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
  6. Scoop dough with a small cookie scoop and place onto greased cookie sheets.
  7. Freeze on cookie sheets for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes.
  9. Cool slightly.
  10. Remove from cookie sheet.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: My cookie scoop held about 4 teaspoonfuls of cookie dough.

NOTE: Rotate cookies on racks every six minutes while baking.

NOTE: Each oven is different. I took cookies out of the oven right before they were done, at about 16 minutes of baking time. That way the chocolate chips will sink down into the cookies and be gooier.

NOTE: If you don’t freeze the cookie dough, these cookies may be done in about 9-11 minutes. However, this method is not recommended because the cookies will run on the cookie sheet and flatten like pancakes.
