This is the usual recipe I always use for Chocolate Chip cookies... it's from the Nestlé Toll House cookie recipe but with a few minor adjustments:
- added a teaspoon of cinnamon
- added half a teaspoon of cloves,
- removed the cup of nuts and replace with additional cup of chocolate chips.
I'm not a big fan of nuts in my chocolate chip cookies, and I also bake them for kids with nut allergies so I just don't bother with the nuts in pretty much most of the cookie recipes I make.
Personally I find the addition of the cinnamon and cloves gives the cookie a spicy flavor but only slightly otherwise it's kind of a bland cookie if you aren't using milk chocolate chips. Most of the time I use semi sweet chips and without the recipe adjustment the cookie tastes like something's missing.
