Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookies

Thursday, October 14, 2010
Classic Nestle recipe. When we first arrived in South Africa, our new friend, an American missionary as well, Marysol, made us these. She knew they would make us feel like we were back at home. My sister and I made them many times afterwards. It's hard to find chocolate chips here so we cut up a chocolate bar or two. Also, we've found that substituting margarine does NOT result in the right texture. Gotta be butter. :) Enjoy...

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks, 1/2 pound) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated [white] sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE in preheated 375-degree [Fahrenheit] oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
