Oma’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nonna’s Mom, known as Oma to her grandchildren, made this recipe with her grandchildren and now with her great grandchildren. Oma got this recipe from the NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels package. Like Nonna, Oma, isn’t all that skilled at following recipes and as a result made a few minor modifications. The recipe is simple, easy, and without a doubt the most fun to bake when your grandchildren are running a muck in your house! Both Oma and Nonna hope you enjoy baking these cookies with your grandchildren!
