My question is can I substitute a batch of home Toll House Cookies for a package of already made Toll House cookies in recipes on this website?  Or do I need to use only a portion of the home mad

My guess is I would go by weight on this.  If the recipe called for a 12 ounce package of cookie dough then use 12 ounces of your home made cookie dough. (12 ounces is just an example I am not sure of the size of the packages.)

Thanks!  I had not thought about weighing my homemade dough to match the package size!

I ike to take a piece of r.t.b.cookie dough ( such as Nestle's ready to bake cookie dough bars) ; roll it into a firm ball.I then roll it into ( choice of ) chopped nuts(pressing n gently)     & bake as usual.
 The nuts toast slightly as the cookies bake; making a fast & easy no fail homemade cookieWink
