Toll House Cookie Secret Recipe From The 1940’s

This Toll House Cookie Secret Recipe from the 1940’s must have slipped through the cracks. We are so lucky that we got our hands on this recipe that grandma may have used. This is such a treasure!

Everyone remembers grabbing a glass of milk and big chocolate chip cookie after dinner. And it was even better if they were warm after coming right out of the oven. If you’re anything like me, once you became an adult, you made it a mission to make amazing chocolate chip cookies. I’ve tried so many different recipes in hopes that I would be the parent or grandparent with ‘the best’ cookies. I must’ve made over 5o different recipes trying to get just the right ingredients.

But now, after all the fancy recipes, I’m realizing that it all comes back to simple ones. Thankfully, someone uncovered the original Toll House cookie recipe and I’m so excited. And you know this recipe is good when it yields 100 cookies. My mouth is already watering just looking at the ingredients. I’m definitely writing this one down so I won’t lose it. So head on over to Allrecipes for the entire recipe and you’ll be on your way to master cookie maker in no time.
