Chocolate Chips

Nothing as good as toll house cookies – no matter what kind of chocolate chips you use.  I’m still into Nestle – mainly because the recipe is on the bag.

But did you know they changed the recipe?  What happened to the water?

The original recipe has all the same ingredients, plus 1/2 tsp. water

Does it make a difference?  Depends on the size of your eggs…smaller eggs need the water; extra large – maybe not. With more liquid, the cookies are flatter and crisper.  But, these cookies are great either way.  And, you’ll feel better eating one – even if your team lost.

  • 2 1/4 cups sifted flour
  • 1 tsp.  baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 package semi-sweet real chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Sift together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Cream butter with sugars, vanilla and water. Beat in eggs. Add flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.. Drop by well-rounded half-teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees  for 10-12 minutes.

  1. I’m so glad to see the info about the water! I thought I was really losing it because I was sure there was water in that recipe. And I always wondered what difference could a mere 1/2 tsp. make. Thanks for clearing that up!
