Original Nestlé Toll House chocolate chip cookies

My mother-in-law loved to make these cookies and made them to perfection using pecans from her pecan tree.  I included the original Nestlé Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies in the blog because sometimes you don’t have the real thing, but you have other chips and would like to use the recipe. The following recipe is from the back of the Nestlé chocolate chip bag. Click on the link to get the story behind the cookies!
