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.


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!!


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!


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.


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.


These are the best thing for a chocolate craving!! They are easy to make and easier to eat!!


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