    Birthday Cookie Cake

    Kennon YECK from Mount Jackson, VA

    My wife made this for my birthday in a 12-inch round pan. After it cooled, she decorated it with frosting and when she presented it to me, I was just thrilled. We froze half (after it was cut into pieces). It is great to take a couple of the pieces out of the freezer each day; they do not take long to thaw!

    Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars

    THERESA CARDILLO from Berkeley Heights, NJ

    These cookies are delicious. I dress them up a bit during the holiday season. Prepare and bake following instructions using walnuts as the nit of choice. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Cut into bar. Melt 1 1/2 cups Nestles Toll House semi sweet chips. Place one teaspoon of melted chocolate in the middle of the cooled cookie. Top with a walnut piece.

    A Family Favorite

    kate drury from ,

    I have made these cookies many times for family and friends it is a great easy recipe, and never fails to impress! I find that it is so much easier to make one big pan cookie instead of hours spent on individual cookies and the best part is every time i make them people ask for the recipe and all i have to do is send them to the website.

    I've made these many times for work and everyone always eats them up. They are easy to make and a lot easier to bring to work than regular cookies.

    Chewey Chocolate Chip Pan Cookie

    Betty Pendley from Bonne Terre, MO

    Hi, I have made these pan cookies for years, and, I add a package of dry vanilla instant pudding mix to my dough to make them "chewy." Try this. My family & friends love these cookies--and--they don't crumble on your floor when little kids eat them! A PLUS!

    13x9 glass pan conversion

    Kellie Franklin from Hartsville, Tennessee

    These were the best pan cookies ever! I only had a 13x9 glass pan and lowered the temperature to 350 for 25 to 30 minutes. I cannot keep them in the house once they come out of the oven. You have to try these!

    These are so good

    Lucie Haspel from Weirton, WV

    I made them for christmas and I had to keep them in the freezer to make sure I still had them for the big day. No cookies are safe in this house. I just made them again for the Steeler game on Sunday. They are great...perfect everytime, and are so fast.

    Old Times

    Debbie Rose from Port Orchard, WA

    I am 50 years old and my mother made these for all of us kids ( 4 of us) and i still remember she would let me help her squash down the dough in the pan and the smell is so outrageous you always knew it was going to be good!! It only take 2o minutes to bake and maybe 10 minutes to make! This receipe is so easy to make , that i made these for my daughter who is almost 14 and she likes to make them for her friends. When i make these our friends will say they remember making these as a kid too!!Easiest & quickest dessert or snack !!

    so good

    KELLY JOHNSON from Columbus, oh

    taste just like original toll house cookies without all the time involved. Put in one pan and bake. If you don't have as much time to make the cookies, make this...

    Original Nestle's Toll House Chocolate Chip Pan Co

    Judy Springsteen from Dowagiac, MI

    I just made these last night and they are almost gone. I remember making these a long time ago but forgot about this recipe. I wanted a quick treat without alot of work and after seeing this recipe on this website I knew what to make. They are delicious especially wam with a glass of milk.

    You can't go wrong with these!!!

    Jamie Feldman from Phoenix, AZ

    These are so easy to make! I cook them in my convection oven at 375 degrees for 18 minutes & they come out perfect. Once cooled, I cut the bars into little squares or triangles. Next, I melt 1/2 cup of chocolate chips & I drizzle it over the cookie bars, in a zig-zag design. I put the melted chocolate in a plastic piping bag to do this; you can do the same thing w/a plastic bag. Just cut the corner off & make sure the chocolate isn't so hot that it melts the bag. It makes for a nice presentation!

    Delicious and Low-Maintenance!

    Nicole Jackson from Simsbury, CT

    I love making bar cookies when I'm pressed for time because it's low maintenance--one pan for all the cookies, no checking until the time goes off at 20 minutes. And if I want a gooey cookie bar the next day, I just put one in the microwave on medium for about 45 seconds and it's gooey, warm and delicious!

  •  Star(s)

    Also great for parties!

    Michelle Covington from Simpsonville, SC

    This has been a great recipe for our family. For the kids paries, I cut out shapes with cookie cutters. They love it! (Parchment paper is the pan liner of choice.)

    Make it red & white!

    Jen Smyser from Mentor, OH

    Pinched for time but need something a little special? Substitute white chips for chocolate and add 1 cup of dried cranberries. The teachers loved these during "teacher appreciation week." Delicious and a little bit healthier than the normal bar cookie!

  •  Star(s)

    A great time saver


    These taste great and are so much faster than making into individual cookies. Growing up, these were my very favorite.

    original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Pan Cook

    patricia johnson from LUFKIN, TX

    This pan cookie is so easy to make. My Grandkids love helping me make these. But they aiso love eating them,They said it taste better than the toll house cookie.

  •  Star(s)


    Jered Bonbrake from ALTON, IL

    This is a no-fail, fast and easy recipe. The most important trick is to beat all the wet ingredients and sugars until they are light and fluffy, then gradually add the dry ingredients. ALSO, try substituting the 1/4 cup of flour with 1/4 cup of powdered cocoa and you will have the best brownie bars around! They taste just like a rich chocolate brownie, but hold together, as finger food, like a cookie! Nestle cocoa powder makes the difference. Be sure to cool completely before removing from the jelly roll pan. If you cant wait, put it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or so, then lift from the pan and cut into squares. Try drizzling with Nestle white chocolate morsels for a dazzling finish!

    Chewy and Easy

    The Number One Cookie that ROCKS

    Brenda Watts from

    One of my families many favorite cookies has always been the classic Chocolate Chip Cookie. But in today's fast and busy times, I don't always have a chance to make them. So during those times I make these pan style cookies. And if I have a few minutes extra I melt a few more Nestle Chocolate Chip Morsels and drizzles over the top of them before I cut them into bars. They truly are awesome in taste and time. They R O C K !!!

    original is best!

    Stacey Mowery from KANSAS CITY, KS

    Loved being able to make a big pan of the original Toll House Cookies and not have the time involved with baking individual cookies!! I added chocolate chips to the top, after baking, and spread them out as a frosting after they melted some and then sprinkled on conversation hearts for a Valentine's Day party and the kids all loved them!!

    halez vanderford from GLENDALE, CA

    These were delicious. I left out the nuts, and used mini chocolate chips instead of regular. The cooking time was shorter for me than what the recipe said--about fifteen minutes in my oven. Very moist!

    Life Saver

    Deborah Antony from Norfolk, VA

    I had promised to bring a dessert to our school's booster club picnic. My day should have given me enough time to make a batch of cookies, but life has a way of getting in the way of plans. I had a big bag of walnuts and always have chips in the pantry. This last minute recipe was a real winner - especially since they were still warm when I put them on the table. One of the DADS called and asked for the recipe! If you use nuts be sure to make a label stating that in case someone has an allergy.

    The Only Way To Make Cookies

    D Travis from PRESCOTT, AZ

    Wow, how easy, and quick. Saves a lot of time not having to drop them out on numerous cookie sheets. I use a piece of was paper and a rolling pin to spread out the dough, and with all the different flavored "chips" out for the holidays, you can make numerous varieties!

    Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Pan Cook


    Even though I had several different types of bars and cookies on my dessert buffet, this original pan cookie was the first to go. I always make a double batch, but for this party, I even doubled that!!! I of course, use Splenda for baking, and the results are great, just a little healthier, and no one can tell the difference. These are and continue to be my very favorite cookie of all time. And from the response I had with all of my baking this year, everyone seems to agree. Thanks for all of your great recipes and baking products. Merry Christmas...............

    Awsome cookies!

    Toni Weeks from Cross, SC

    This recipe is a delight to make. Not to mention easy for my 5 year old daughter to help with. We doubled the recipe and baked the cookies into 2 large round pans. After they cooled a bit we had a blast decorating the cookies with butter cream icing, just to add alittle message like "I Love You". They turned out great and my daughter had a great time baking with me.
