{Recipe} Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe from www.OurThriftyIdeas.com

Whenever I am in charge of bringing a dessert, or “treat” to something, this is my go to recipe! Even my Dad requests them often when it’s been too long since I have dropped by with a batch.
I have made these cookies for years….15 maybe. And I’m not sure I will ever change. This is definitely a keeper, and I thought I’d share.

This recipe was originally from the back of the Tollhouse bag of chocolate chips. I have tweaked and changed a few things over the years though.

Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks butter (brought to room temp)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Start by sifting the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Set aside
Cream the butter in a mixer for about 30 seconds. Add both granulated and brown sugars and mix. Put in eggs and vanilla then mix for about 30 seconds.
Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until well combined. Do not over mix.
Dump in chocolate chips and hand stir into the dough.

Drop 1 tablespoon size balls onto a cookie sheet and cook for 8-10 minutes (I have almost always used 9 minutes, but my current oven does take a little longer) until slightly golden. Remove immediately from cookie sheet and cool on a cooling rack.
