Who doesn’t LOVE chocolate chip cookies? Earlier I shared an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe but this one is directly from Nestle’s. Not only are they delicious, but easy to make. And fun to share!
I follow the recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies verbatim except I add one teaspoon of salt instead of 1/2 teaspoon. I did it on accident once and we loved it! We love salt on everything so it figures we would enjoy extra salt. Yesterday at the grocery store I found these Halloween inspired semi-sweet chocolate chips in black and orange. They look so festive I had to buy some!
Here’s the recipe:
Nestle’s Toll House Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 375 Degrees
I cup butter (2 sticks) softened
1 1/4 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (I add 1 teaspoon)
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
2 1/2 cups quick oats
2 cups (12 ounces) Nestle’s semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Slowly add the remaining ingredients adding the chocolate chips and nuts last.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto parchment paper and a baking sheet. I put 12 per baking sheet. (These don’t spread very much.) Bake 9-10 minutes. I bake mine for 9 minutes so they are still soft in the middle. This makes about 5 dozen cookies. Plenty to share with friends and neighbors! Enjoy!
TIP: I love using parchment paper when I bake cookies. They come out so easily and you don’t need to use cooking spray. Reynold’s makes parchment paper sheets that fit standard size baking sheets and can be used multiple times. I also love using my double ovens. It makes the process twice as fast! Have a great weekend!
