My Version of Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sue Smith


I changed the Tollhouse recipe a little bit because sometimes they were flat. The secret of great chocolate chip cookies is to use real butter and don't use a mixer. I always use a ceramic bowl and a wooden spoon. (My grandma taught me that and I always get tons of compliments when I make my cookies.)
