“Mama’s” Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_6551

Chocolate Chip Cookies are a classic household recipe. There are many variations of these cookies that exist in the world. They are all baked with love and filled with smiles.

As children, my brother and I always loved to help my mom make these cookies and we often got into fights over who was going to lick the spoon. Now that I’m grow I love to bake a batch of these delicious cookies all the time. I usually put my own spin on them by adding pecans or walnuts.

The family recipe that I thought we had is actually just the Nestlé Toll House Cookie Recipe that can be found on the back of a bag of semi sweet Nestlé Toll House chocolate chips or online at their website. Despite the secret being out, they are still just as good as when I was a kid.
