Aren't these just the best ever? I know everyone has this recipe but I am posting it so I can include it in my Mom's cookbook. She made these all the time and we never got tired of them.

According to her recipe file this is the ORIGINAL NESTLES TOLL HOUSE COOKIE RECIPE from the back of the chocolate chip package.
