For High Altitude Baking (5,200 feet):
Increase flour to 2 1/2 cups. Add 2 teaspoons water with flour and reduce both granulated sugar and brown sugar to 2/3 cup each. Bake drop cookies for 10 to 12 minutes and pan cookie for 17 to 19 minutes.

* NOTE: If omitting nuts, add 1-2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 3/4 Cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 Cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 2/3 Cup chocolate morsels, such as Nestle Toll House
  • 1 Cup chopped nuts

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in 1 cup morsels and nuts. Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Top dollops with remaining morsels.
