I love Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies. The only thing they don't tell you that will make these cookies any better is to add "toasted" pecans. And while I didn't add to the batch, I love adding pretzel pieces. I love the crunch and the salt.

Toast the pecans for a nuttier flavor! If you like nuts, you will love em toasted in this cookie!
