It’s Saturday and the family is looking for cookies. So I whip up the family fav…Chocolate chip. Now growing up my go to was the Nestle Toll house cookie recipe that was until I happened to stop by at my Aunt’s house one day about 40 years ago, yes that’s 4-0, FORTY. She had just finished baking cookies and wow I can still remember the smell of freshly baked cookies as I entered her house. Of course I had to have one and after one bite of my cookie I knew I must have this recipe. Crispy on the outside but soft on the inside and ooey gooey chocolate dripping on my chin. oh man, so yummy.
I needed this recipe, but with our kids running around could we find a piece of paper? NO, but she did find an envelope, so I wrote down the recipe with all good intentions of transferring to a recipe card when I went home.
Well as of today 40+ years later, that cookie recipe is still on the same envelope which I still pull out every time I bake these yummy chocolate chip cookies. And yes, Nestle Toll House Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips are still my go to chips. I do omit the coconut and nuts for my family and they are still the best! Plus it will make about 6 dozen and they freeze very well.
Since that day 40+ years ago, my aunt has found out she was celiac and couldn’t enjoy her cookie recipe but I have found a product that she can use instead of the flour, its called Bella Gluten Free All Purpose Baking mix. You use it cup for cup as you would regular flour and it’s the best. It’s produced in Colorado but it’s available on Amazon for all of you not in Colorado.
