This is a Nestle Toll House recipe, I live in Hanson and the neighboring town to me is Whitman where the first Toll House cookies were made, they still make them in Whitman now not in the same factory of course. The restaurant they had in front of the factory used to have a huge tree growing in the middle coming up from the ground, I know it sounds crazy but it did.
Now there is a Wendy's there. Course no tree in the middle, haha
