Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

After trying these you will toss that tollhouse recipe in the trash. These are easy and sooo delicious!


1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups chocolate chips (I like to use a mixture of milk chocolate and semi sweet)
1 cup of nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.

Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Add baking soda and salt.

Stir in flour

Add in chocolate chips, and nuts(optional).

Drop by using a cookie scoop onto ungreased pans.Bake for about 8-10 minutes (depending on oven), or until edges are nicely browned.
