The toll house recipe has always been my favorite as well. you just can't go wrong. a few tricks i've picked up along the way: if you substitute 1/2 cup margarine and 1/2 cup shortening for the 1 cup of butter, they turn out very soft and stay that way. also, i prefer Nestle chocolate chips because they stay well-formed, but as soon as you bite into them they're all melted on the inside. oh, so good!!
