The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Could Be the Easiest To Make!

If you do a browser search for “Chocolate Chip Cookies” you’ll be blown away at how many different recipes there are, each claiming to be the best ever. Having tried several of these “ultimate” recipes, I have learned to avoid any food blogger who says, “My husband absolutely loved these cookies and couldn’t stop eating them!” The truth is, her husband is probably having an affair with a woman who is sensible enough to follow the recipe for Toll House Cookies on the back of the Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chip package.

How do I know this is a recipe worth cheating for? I tortured myself by making a number of these food blogger “best ever” chocolate chip cookie recipes. When I’ve done blind taste tests, the simple recipe that’s on the back of the Nestle’s Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels package almost always comes out on top. Sure, the food blogger “best ever” chocolate chip cookies look great because they’ve got mountains of useless crap thrown into them, but that doesn’t mean they taste better, and they take four times longer to make.

Bake a batch of the simple time-honored Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies. Give them to a partner, a wannabe partner, or your family or co-workers and you’ll be their hero for the day. Here’s the how-to video from Nestle’s website:
