- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, divided

Review This Recipe
The only recommendation I would make for this recipe is make sure you only soften the butter a little and don't melt it. If you melt it the crumb topping does not crumb, it ends up being a cookie dough consistency. However, they still taste good even if that happens.
