As a young girl I used to be in the kitchen a lot cooking with my mom, one of my favorites was Chocolate
Chip Cookies (which came in a box way back when); however every time I made them my sister who was
10 years older would show up and help me eat them!! After I was grown, I happened to come across
Ruth Wakefield’s Toll House Tried and True Recipe book from 1941. Much to my pleasure there was the original recipe for those mouth watering little morsels. Now I always make them from scratch and get compliments from everyone who tries them, and of course I have started the tradition of sending some to my sister who still lives in New York!!!
Chocolate Crunch Cookies
1 cup butter, add ¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs beaten whole.
1 tsp. baking soda in
1 tsp. hot water
Mix alternately with:
2 ¼ cups flour sifted with
1 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped nuts and
2 bars (7 oz.) Nestles yellow label chocolate, semi sweet, which has been cut up in pieces the size
1 tsp. vanilla and drop half teaspoons on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes in a
375 degree oven.
Makes 100 cookies.
I found they store great in an airtight container, if you’re lucky enough to keep them around!!!
