Easy Recipe

This recipe for the Original Toll House cookies has been on the Nestles chocolate chip bag for a long, long time. I have included it here. You have two bowls: one bowl contains your wet ingredients. Then, you mix up your dry ingredients into a different bowl. Then, you dump your dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients.

Then, you start adding your carrots, raisins, and chocolate chips one ingredient at a time. Once everything is mixed together, you take a spoon and scrape up a spoonful of dough and place it on the cookie sheet in an organized fashion. These cookies will spread a bit, so make sure there is space between. A person could add an extra egg, and a little more flour to this, but I did not. The cookies baked well.

You bake them until the top looks dry. Usually, it has a nice, golden brown color on the edges.

Take the pan out of the oven, and cool it for a minute, then, loosen your cookies with a flat spatula. Move the cooling cookies to a cooling rack.

I covered my cooling rack with waxed paper to make the counter have less of a crumbly mess. It sort of solved my crumbs.

Flavor

The flavor of the cookies is fruity.

I suppose the carrot flavor takes over, plus the raisins are probably fruity.

At any rate, they were or are pretty tasty.

And, maybe they are healthy for me.
