It’s National Cookie Day! Which means it is finally time for me to share my family’s heavily guarded and world famous chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s been passed down several generations and truly is incomparable.

  • Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.

  • My great(x4) grandmother, Nesleé, from France originally developed this recipe. Her family name was Toulousé.


    Okay you caught me. This is obviously the classic recipe for Original Nestle® Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies.

    But you can’t blame me for ripping it off. It’s delish! Hope you have a delightful National Cookie Day.

    Oh! And Pro Tip: do not look at the nutrition facts. A serving size is apparently one cookie. Who eats one cookie?? We’ll worry about that on National Sit-Up Day. Or never. Whatever.
