I have so many chocolate chip cookie recipes but none that are crispy! And who doesn’t love a crispy cookie?! My dad LOVES a crispy cookie so I tried my best to find out what makes a cookie, crispy. There are so many different ingredients and techniques needed to create the perfect cookie and I still have not found it. Unfortunately when I made these, it was humid and rainy out and weather actually plays a factor in baking! Who would have thought? However, they are still good and I will share my recipe with you and also what to do if you want a more crispy cookie.
So, before the recipe, here are some key things to know if you want a crispy cookie:
- Use more white sugar than brown sugar.
- Do not chill the dough.
- Bake for 2 minutes or more than you would a normal cookie.
- Do not use too many eggs.
- Make sure your kitchen is dry and cool. No humid weather!
What you will need:
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In another large bowl, beat together the butter and both sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Slowly add in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough on cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes (or longer if you want a super crispy cookie). Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
Store covered at room temp.
