National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

Did you know that May 15th is National Chocolate Chip Day? In celebration of this holiday, here is a recipe for chocolate chip cookies that’ll make everybody want to be your friend when you have them.

Chocolate chip cookies are just one of those foods that feel like home. One of the best sensations you can have is taking a bite from a good chocolate chip cookie and feeling the chocolate chips melt into your mouth. However, a cookie made wrong can end up not so good, and this recipe is here for you to know how to make a cookie done right. 

This recipe is actually the Toll House chocolate chip recipe, which stems from the very first chocolate chip cookie. The first chocolate chip cookie was created as an accident, in 1939. Ruth Wakefield was baking cookies in the Toll House restaurant, in Whitman Massachusetts when she decided to add broken pieces of chocolate to them, expecting them to melt into the cookie. Instead, the pieces of chocolate held their shape, but she discovered that this actually added to the flavor and made the cookies better. She published her recipe in a newspaper in Boston, and the chocolate chip cookie soon became the most popular cookie ever.


The Ingredients you’ll need to make these delicious cookies are:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Nestlé Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (if omitting, add 1-2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour)

Now that you have the ingredients, here’s how to use them:

Starting off, you’ll want to preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. 

After you’ve preheated your oven, combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy.

Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well.

Slowly mix in the flour mixture until combined

Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts(if using nuts)

Use a rounded tablespoon to drop onto baking sheets.

Lastly, bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Take out of the oven and let cool for 2 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

That’s all for this simple chocolate chip cookie recipe. Hope you enjoy it!
