French aunt chocolate chip cookie recipe


This is a truly classic and delicious chocolate chip cookie. The recipe is from the back of a popular company’s chocolate chip bag and definitely not from anyone’s “French” aunt. You no longer need to experiment with tons of different recipes to find the perfect one!

  • Yield: 5 dozen cookies
  • Preparation Time: 10 Minutes


  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • 1 cup nuts (your preference), chopped (optional)
How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, gently whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt just to combine. Set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer set to medium speed, or using a hand mixer, cream the butter for 1 minute. Add both sugars and continue to cream until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Crack in the eggs, add the vanilla, and mix to combine.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips and nuts, if using, by hand using a rubber spatula.
  7. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, or until the edges have begun to crisp and the cookies are golden brown.
  9. Let cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to a cooling rack.
