Toll House Cookies (Ca. 1968)

“This was the first cookie recipe I made outside Home Ec class. I was in high school. We had a tiny, tiny kitchen with an apartment sized stove. My mom wasn't into cooking at all and didn't have baking sheets, so cookies got baked in a couple of pie tins, four at a time. I clipped this from the Nestle chocolate chip wrapper so many years ago. The recipe now is different.”
