Back to School AND Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today was the 3rd day of the new school year and some thing was wrong. What, no Room Mom Meeting? No meeting with the teachers. Hmmm... I didn't even make a PB&J this morning. I must be the mother of a high school Senior.
Something else was missing. Ah, I know...get yourself organized and bake cookies!
What can I say, it's a tradition. School starts and I bake chocolate chip cookies. The difference this year is I am no longer on the PTSA, Chair of the Auction or making treats for teachers or anything.
Not exactly a low-calorie, low-carb, fat-free, sugar-free diet option, but everything in moderation. Well, I had 1 cookie and it was pretty good!
Nothing special with this cookie, it's your basic Nestle's Toll House Cookie, recipe on the bag.

Original NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. (I use unbleached parchment on the cookie sheet.)
BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
