Recipe by: Anita Hansen
Gary's favorite chocolate chip cookie. After years of tweaking the basic Nestle Toll House recipe we've come to what our family considers to be the best chocolate chip cookie with this recipe. We almost always have these on-hand in the freezer.
Active Time
15 minutes
Total Time
1 hour and 15 minutes
Yields
24 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 c. Margarine (we use Parkay)

  • 2-3/4 c. Unbleached White Wheat Flour
  • 1-3/4 c. Nestle Chocolate Chips
  • 1 c. Pecans, chopped (optional)

Directions:

  1. 1. Assemble the Bosch Universal Plus with the Cookie Paddles.

  3. 3. Place margarine and vegetable shortening in mixer bowl.
  4. 4. Add sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla.
  5. 5. Mix on speed one until creamy. Scrape sides of bowl.
  6. 6. Add eggs and mix on speed one.
  7. 7. Add soda, salt, flour, chocolate chips, and chopped pecans.
  8. 8. Place splash ring and cover on the mixer bowl. Mix on speed one until well combined. Scrape sides of bowl.
  9. 9. Remove cookie paddles from cookie dough.
  10. 10. Chill dough in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
  11. 11. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  12. 12. Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper so you won't need to wash the cookie sheet after baking.
  13. 13. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop out cookie dough and place on parchment covered cookie sheets.
  14. 14. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until cookie is golden brown on top.
  15. 15. Remove from oven and let cookies rest on the cookie sheet for a couple minutes before removing to finish cooling on paper towel covered cooling rack.
  16. 16. Be sure to eat some fresh! If there are any left, freeze cooled cookies in an airtight freezer container.

Author's Notes:

I enjoy making these cookies with the help of our grandsons. The Guidecraft Kitchen Helper (SKU KJ363) makes having them in the kitchen fun, safe, and easy! When you find your home pantry out of eggs, purchased margarine, or vegetable shortening, shelf stable Ova-Easy eggs, margarine powder, and shortening powder sure come in handy to save the day. While our family goal is to eat fresh, organic, whole grain, natural foods nearly all the time, we've come to the conclusion there are a few things in life that simply need to be appreciated and enjoyed in moderation for what they are. In our home kitchen these include making chocolate chip cookies, pies, and Grandma's waffles using unbleached white flour, processed margarine, and shortening.
