chocolate chip cookies

I woke up today to another cold, cloudy, January morning. Last night i was coming down with a sore throat and this morning there was no sign of it getting better. So I decided it was a great day to stay in, get things done around the house that i have been putting off, and to make cookies.

Nestles Toll House cookies has got to be the best cookies recipe there is!

2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cup Nestles Toll House milk chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped nuts
Preheat: oven to 375 degrees
Combine: flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto a ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake: 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
this makes about 5 dozen cookies.
Note: I usually double this recipe. They don't last long with four boys in the house!
