Default Lifeisgood's OUTSTANDING Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nestle's Toll House semi sweet chocolate chips (12 oz.) and use the recipe on the back.

Now........this is what I change a bit that makes them outstanding! First, I always add at least 1/2 - 1 cup extra chocolate chips. Also at least 1 1/2 cups (instead of 1 cup) pecans.

Do not "chop" the pecans.......break them into large pieces and then toast them! Doesn't take long, so don't get them too brown.

Next, add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the flour mixture and before adding the pecans and chips.......add about 1 cup instant oatmeal.

Make sure the dough is chilled for about 10 minutes before you start putting them on the cookie sheet. If it's too warm, the cookies flatten out.

You would be amazed at the difference it makes by toasting the pecans! I've received SOOO many compliments on these cookies. Try it!
