Jumbo Chocolate Chippers


I was craving some chocolate chip cookies, so I decided to try out a chocolate chip cookie tip my friend Stephanie had given me: when making the Nestle® Toll House® cookie recipe, just use HALF the butter. If you do that, you’ll get a thicker, chewier cookie, which is really good! In addition to just using half the butter, I also left out the nuts and made them a jumbo size, so my baking time is a few minutes longer. I love the way the cookies turned out…so thick and chocolatey! If you want to make regular-size cookies, just follow the instructions for these Toll House® cookies, using half the butter (the baking time might be slightly less, too). For the jumbo ones like I made, here’s what I did…

JUMBO CHOCOLATE CHIPPERS (adapted from the Nestle® Toll House® recipe)

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 measuring cup for scooping the dough

Preheat oven to 375° F. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl; set aside. In large mixer bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add in flour mixture to the egg/sugar mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by 1/4 cupfuls (using a 1/4 measuring cup) onto ungreased baking sheets. Because these are bigger cookies, you’ll just want to bake 6 at a time on each cookie sheet, with 2-3 inches between each cookie.

Bake for 13 to 14 minutes or until lightly golden brown (don’t overbake or they’ll be too dry). Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. This makes about 16-20 jumbo size cookies…it made 16 for me, but…I ate some of the dough…you know how hard it is to resist doing that! 🙂


It’s also hard to resist eating these cookies after they come out of the oven… 🙂

    I made the recipe straight from Tollhouse recently and my cookies came out flat and crunchy. I will definitely try your recipe because I like my cookies thick and chewy! Thanks for posting.

    Hi Nancy,
    Just look at that cookie…Jumbo indeed. It really looks like an awesome cookie, I hope you brought enough for everyone. Thank you so much for bringing your cookies to Full Plate Thursday and please come back!

    Thank you for sharing this great recipe. After seeing the picture, I had to try them. THEY ARE FABULOUS! I love how they stay nice and thick and don’t spread. I don’t miss the extra butter at all. In fact, I like them much better without as they aren’t overly heavy and rich. Good advice to watch the baking time. My first batch were a little too crunchy (still completely delicious) but the next batch I baked for :01 less and they are perfection. Next time I’ll be making a double batch!

      I’m so glad you liked these cookies, Rosie, and thank you for letting me know! I don’t miss the extra butter in the recipe, either…having nice thick chocolate chip cookies with less fat is a win-win in my opinion! 🙂

    Holy Smokes! Those look amazing. I always use this recipe to make mini cookies (for the kiddos, and so that when I eat 4 I don’t feel so bad) BUT next time, oh, they’ll be jumbo-sized for certain. 🙂
