Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe: Crispy, Crunchy Delights

chocolate chip cookie recipe

This chocolate chip cookie recipe challenged me on so many levels.

We were having an open house – as we have listed the house for sale just recently- and trying to overcome my natural instincts to make a mother of a mess while baking was almost impossible.

Watch the flour and don’t flick it all over.

Use only one spoon.

Wash everything up almost AS I use it, to control the mess on the counters.

Put all ingredients back in the cupboard.

Who bakes up a chocolate chip cookie recipe like this? Who can handle the stress? I don’t get it.

So that in itself was a challenge unlike any other for this messy baker.

The second was overcoming my love of chewy, moist chocolate chip cookies and purposely trying to make a batch as crispy and crunchy as I could.

In order to do that, we have to raise the amount of flour slightly, lower the brown sugar amount and cut it down to one egg. The ratios in all the recipes I have been trying are all adjusted to make a different cookie from one master chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Kitchen science is amazingly cool.

Ingredients Needed:

2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup of butter, softened
1 1/4 cups of white granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 cups of chocolate chips

Kick the tires and light the fires to 375 degrees.

Cream together your butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla, mixing thoroughly. Beat in the flour, baking soda and salt.

When that is done, fold in the two cups of chocolate chips by hand, and prepare to put them on some parchment paper lined cookie sheets.

Roll a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball, 12 per cookie sheet.

Take a glass and using the bottom, flatten out each cookie. If the cookie sticks, start wetting the bottom of the glass with water, they will come right off.

Flatten each of them as much as you can. This is a dry dough – no sticky chewiness going on here- but it’s just wet enough to make perfect little flat cookie patties.

Bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on the sheets completely.

This chocolate chip cookie recipe turned out to make wonderfully crispy, crunchy cookies and were surprisingly a hit with everyone. The butter flavor really is apparent in these ones due to the lack of flavor that comes with white sugar, but that isn’t a bad thing at all. Buttery, crispy little bites of chocolate heaven!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope we all are getting outside in the beautiful spring weather, throwing our windows open to let the fresh air in and embracing spring to it’s fullest!

Love,
