Classic Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies (1938)

This is the original Toll House Cookies recipe created by Ruth Graves Wakefield at her Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts.

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tspn baking soda
  • 1 tspn salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tspn vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 12-oz package semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt, and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract.  Beat until creamy.  Beat in eggs. Gradually add flour mixture, and mix well.  Stir in semi-sweet chocolate morsels and nuts. 

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Makes 100 2-inch cookies.
