The original Toll House Cookie recipe (from 1939)


1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter or other shortening
1 egg
1-1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 economy-size bar semisweet chocolate (7 ounces)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Important: Cut each small square of semisweet chocolate into four pieces.

Cream butter or other shortening and add sugars and beaten egg. Dissolve soda in the hot water and mix alternately with the flour sifted with the salt. Lastly, add the chopped nuts and the pieces of semisweet chocolate. Flavor with the vanilla and drop by half teaspoons on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes in a 375 degree Fahrenheit oven. Makes 50 cookies.
