Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup country crock light margarine
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels or Nestle Easter colored white and chocolate chip mix


PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat coconut oil, margarine, and shortening, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Place in refrigerator 10 minutes until mixture sets and oils solidify just a bit. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Do not over mix. Stir in morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely
* This recipe is the recipe found on the back of Nestle tollhouse chocolate chip bags except for several alterations. When I realized I didn't have any stick butter I thought about a replacement. I had coconut oil, country crock light margarine, and vegetable shortening on hand. None of them alone sounded very appetizing or would hold up while baking. At the last second I decided on using 1/3 of a cup of each. It was the best last minute decision during a baking process I've ever made. The cookies simply turned out perfectly amazing. I got tons of compliments on them. They holy trio I came up with made the cookies texture light, crumbly, soft in the middle, edges just a bit crunchy. I've been searching for a cookie recipe that would turn out these kinds of cookies for years! I just had to share what I had discovered. Next time you use your favorite cookie recipe replace the stick butter with the above!
*I also baked these cookies at 350 instead of the nestle recipe of 375.
