    These are the best cookies I have ever had. When I made them for the first time, my whole family loved them. I recommend this recipe to anyone who loves chocolate chip cookies.

    just a small change...

    Jennifer Jeffers from San Dimas, CA

    This is a wonderful recipe, but made better by using half butter and half margarine instead...just seemed to give the cookies a crisp oustside, but very moist middle...SOOO good!!

    Best Cookie Recipe Ever

    Tracy VanBeek from O fallon, MO

    Just like everyone else, I have been making these cookies for a lifetime. My secret is to make sure the creamed ingredients are mixed thoroughly. I am not sure what life would be without Toll House Cookies!

    how to make them chewier

    Ellen Peebles from Brookline, MA

    I've been making toll house cookies for about 35 years and I've learned that you get a chewier cookie when you: a) use margarine, not butter (butter gives a richer flavor, but a crunchier texture); b) add in a couple tablespoons of extra flour. I'm from a 100% butter family so this doesn't come naturally to me, but believe me, it makes a difference. I've made them thousands of times, with marg, butter, and vegetable shortening.

    Best of the Best

    DONNA FLUEGEL from BETHEL, CT

    I have been making these cookies for the last 20 years and they are always excellent! They are chewy and rich in flavor. I love adding the walnuts for added flavor. I often make 2 batches and keep one in the freezer for those last minute cookie cravings.

    Anita Hoffman from HOLLAND, PA

    I made these for a birthday party and they were gobbled up. They were so delicious. The larger chocolate pieces made them yummier.

    Chunks are best

    NICOLE RENNER from WYANET, IL

    I bought the chocolate chunks originally to make chocolate chunk pancakes with, and then I had some left over, so I put them in the cookie recipe. Never knew you could improve on an already excellent recipe. There is something about using the chocolate chunks that make the cookies that much better. I will probably make with chunks from now on. I make a double batch, for some don't make it to the oven, and some are had fresh out of it. I also freeze some for later eating (and enjoying). They freeze very well, and are great slightly frozen as well.

    Love the Chunks!

    TRICIA LUMALCURI from KANEOHE, HI

    How can you possibly improve on the original Toll House Cookie? If you are a chocolate lover, the large chunks make these even better! We loved the big chocolate pieces in the cookie! They did not last long in my house!

    This is for Chocolate lovers

    Daniel Sofie from Port Angeles, WA

    I made up a batch of Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chunk Cookies the Friday evening that my daughter came home from college for a weekend visit..... it always makes the house smell so good. Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Chunk cookies are always our family's favorite... and the Original Nestle Toll House recipes are the best, the ones that all others are judged by. I particuarly like the chunks... they are bigger than the morsels or chips... and are well liked by this household of chocolate lovers.

    I have made these cookies for the past 8 years. I Love these cookies. I tried a different receipe the last time I made chocolate cookies and they were awful. I will never switch again.

    Awesome

    Leslie Keisel from Orem, UT

    I couldn't stop eating the dough. The cookies were even better. Make sure you have a full stomach before making the cookies or you might eat all of the dough before you get any cookies.

    They were very flat.

    Fiona Blom from DeWitt, NY

    I made these yesterday and followed the recipe, but my cookies came out really flat and really crunchy. I thought they would have been a little chewy. I wasn't that happy with them.

    Nice change

    Zein Issa from Hollywood, FL

    I made these cookies on the weekend instead of regular chocolate chip cookies and they were great. The chunks made the cookies more substantial than the chocolate chips, add some nuts and they're amazing!

    I bought the chocolate chunks one day just because the grocery store was out of the regular size chips...I think I actually like the chunks better. Just when I thought I couldn't improve on the original Toll House recipe!

    Review for Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chunk Cookies

    Nav Singh from LOS ANGELES, CA, USA

    Probably the best cookies I have ever made. I just followed the directions, and made sure to preheat and baked for 11 minutes. Turned out so moist and really great. I used a small ice cream scooper for size.

    Review for Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chunk Cookies

    Linda Canaday from Northwood, OH, USA

    I just made this recipe for my son's class and they turned out FLAT! What went wrong? I used butter and margarine. They taste really good (per my daughter), but their appearance is strangely flat. I'm really disappointed because my son wants to take them to school in the morning in celebration of being "Student of the Week." Please let me know what could've gone wrong so it won't happen again. Thank you.
