These are extremely delicious. I make them with freshly ground whole wheat flour and eggs from our chickens. And I don't do nuts. I also only bake them for 8 minutes.
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12 oz) Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped nuts
Preheat the oven to 375F
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter and sugars in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Add Vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
