As an introduction, allow me to remind everyone of this FRIENDS gem with this really great quality video. “The One With Phoebe’s Cookies” is an iconic episode in which Monica really wants Phoebe’s grandmother’s chocolate chip cookie recipe. Phoebe’s grandmother swore never to allow the recipe to leave the family, so Monica bakes a million different variations of chocolate chip cookies in the hopes of stumbling upon the correct combination. It ends up being revealed that Phoebe’s grandmother got the recipe from her French grandmother, “Nestley Toulouse.” This, of course, is just the recipe written on the bag of Nestle Toll House chocolate morsels (morsels is my favorite word, had to throw it in here).
Moral of the story? Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies are the greatest of all time. They’re easy to make and even easier to eat.
This, of course, annoys me to no end because I hate Nestle. You can read a little about their controversial practices here. If you’re worried about this being a biased source, which is something I try to be conscious these days, I implore you to do your own research. Most concerning to me is their commodification of water. Okay, tangent over. Kind of.
That being said, on the back of Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Morsels (morsels!) there is a recipe.
I would definitely encourage everyone to make this recipe and use another brand for the chocolate chips. Then you can exploit the recipe without supporting the shady company! And just in time for National Chocolate Chip Cookie Week.
