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.

OUR LATEST VIDEOS

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!

    I liked them, and I’m not a big chocolate chip fan. They have a nice buttery taste. I had my taste testers try them and reviews were mixed. Those that like chewy cookies rated them as “ok”. Crunchy fans said “really good”.

    These came out more crisp than typical chocolate chip cookie recipes but by no means would I call it crunchy. I was expecting something with crunchiness of walker’s shortbread or a chips ahoy cookie. Is that the texture these cookies are supposed to have? If so, then I did something wrong.

        I’ve got the same case.n yes, the weather’s being hot n humid, too bad.i tried to fix it with put the dough in the fridge for a little while, not really working.moreover, it makes the chocochips melt (or because it’s already so soft because the temperature in my kitchen? Then I try to put more flour. And still, put it in the fridge before bake it. kinda works out but I think I gotta flatten it thinner to make it really crispy. Well, this is my experience 🙂

    Oops I forgot the baking soda but they still turned out ok.  I made a roll of the cookie dough and sliced off several cookies.  I put the rest in saran wrap and into the freezer for the next cookie craving.  Way to dangerous to keep  lying around!  I might try reducing the sugar next time but wonder how much I can get away with?  (I am diabetic…)  (Yes we eat cookies too….but not that often).

    Hi Karlynn! Thanks for posting such wonderful recipes with helpful instructions.

    I have a teeny tiny convection oven and can only about fit 6 cookies at a time. How long can this dough sit out so that I can bake multiple batches? Should I put it in the fridge while it waits its turn in the oven? I live in India and it is pretty warm and humid where I am. Realllly keen to make these because they sound just perfect! 🙂 Thanks in advance!

    I made these with half butter and half coconut oil and added a couple tablespoons chia seeds which added a nice little crunch 🙂  Wow…I’m a fan of your recipes!  I have 5 kids, 4 of them boys, home-schooled too and holy cow!  How do you manage all of this! You must be… organized?  Or a chocolate chip cookie addict!  :)  In response to people commenting about the height etc… I just spooned them onto the sheet and tho’ they had some height they were still wonderfully crispy and crunchy and sort of substantial because of the height.

    Oh…by the way…just tried my THIRD batch (gee…do you think my family LIKES these? )  and this time…I hope it doesn’t ruin them!…I added the chia seeds, flax meal, and unsweeted coconut.  And I forgot to mention I always add at least a generous cup of walnuts medium chopped.  This is the BEST basic chocolate chip recipe I’ve ever used.  I’M addicted too!

    Bravo!  I had tried so many times to find the crunch I wanted w/out the greasy over rich thing happening.  Excellent recipe.

    The recipe is great, but I did an experiment with flattening and not flattening the cookies balls. From my one go with these, i prefer the non-flattened cookies. They spread out in the oven anyway, into lovely round cookies with a bit more height. And both versions are crunchy, so why work harder? ; )

    Thank you, thank you , thank you!! I’m in the UK and I’ve been hunting for a crispy chocolate chip cookie recipe for years! I think it’s a British thing, that we tend to prefer a crunchy cookie to a chewy one! I made these today and oh..my..word!! My quest is over! I’ve eaten 5 already today & hubby hasn’t even come home from work yet! Hope there’s still some for him to try! I used salted butter so I think next time, I’d leave out the salt, but still perfection! Can’t wait for hubby to try one!

Will have to hit Costco to look for giant catering size tubs of them! I also meant to check with you, when U.S recipes say “flour” as in your recipe, do you mean plain flour or self raising flour? I’ve been using self raising but just thought I’d check!

    SoOoOoOoO I grabbed the wrong sugar by mistake,  only had 1/2 a cup of white, and had to use brown sugar for the rest. However, I’m a big fan of brown sugar and it didn’t seem to effect the outcome at all. That being said, best darn crispy cookie I’ve made. No cakiness at all. I’ve never been able to get the right consistency before (crispy is my fave) 😀 Thanks for doing the dirty work!!!!

      @Sara Unsalted, but I have been known to use salted and then omit the salt. A lot, actually.

    Just stumbled on to your recipe and I’m wondering if its possible to make the cookies a little thicker but still retain the crunchiness/crispness?

      @Farah  You could go a little thicker for sure and still have them crisp. Maybe I’ll try making them today and see how I can get them thicker… a thick, crispy chocolate chip cookie.. mmm!

    We are a gluten and dairy free household so I adapted this recipe in hope for crunchy cookies and they came out great! I changed the flour to 1 cup rice flour and 1.5 cup almond meal (which helps give it a nutty flavour) with about 1/8 teaspoon of xanthan gum, same amount of butter but used cacao butter, same amount of choc chips but replaced with cacao nibs (both help give it chocolatey and buttery taste without the dairy) and 1 1/4 cups of coconut sugar in replacement of all the sugar in the recipe.

    I cooked the first batch at 190 degrees C and they came out a bit firmer than a subway cookie ( I made them that big as well) so the second batch I cooked at 170 degrees C for a little longer and made them thinner than the first batch and they came out CRUNCHY! woohoo! Thank you for the recipe! 🙂

    Hi

     First of all, i must say, the cookies look great! I would like to know if the flour needs to be sieved and does this dough require chilling before baking?

    Thank you!

    Hi! I was on the hunt for a crispy cc cookie and landed in your nest! Tried these and they were perfection–followed the recipe exactly and they even looked like your photo! The second time I made them (again, following the recipe to a T), they were totally flat–like cookie creeps with the chips rising from them like mountains on a plain. Do you have any idea what could have happened? I thought I’d ask since you’ve done so much experimenting. Thanks!

      If your butter in the dough is too warm the result is often a flat cookie. Try refrigerating the dough for an hour or so.

    The batter should be quite dry as there’s only one egg and more flour. However, is it high humidity where you are baking? Rain, snow or generally a humid place? This can add moisture to baking. I’ve never had them too wet, in fact sometimes it seems they are too dry but always turn out. Try adding in another 1/4 cup of flour or perhaps cut the butter by 1/4 cup.

    hi karlynn.. I just made this recipe. But batter was not dry, they quite wet. And my cookies turn out chewy, they only crispy on the edge. Do you know what is wrong?? I follow your recipe exactly the same, I only change the chocolate chip with chocolate chunk. 

    Thank you

      marcella i had the same problem. i added 1 and a 1/2 cup of flour to the matter and it was still soft….couldnt be rolled in a ball but when i kinds spread it out a bit the cookies were amazing.     i tried adding more flour and rolled those and squished them flat with my hand. those cookies were also crispy, they were better shaped but i prefered eating the batch that only had the 1 1/2 flour added

    Dear Kitchen Magpie,
    I just made this recipe with a few minor adjustments. I halved the recipe, reduced the white sugar by .25 c, increased the vanilla a tad and used egg beaters. I did not flatten the cookies, they melted into a beautiful round mound in the oven all on their own. And, they are by far the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made! They actually turned out chewy (oops) but so much better than a bakery cookie and not flat at all like toll house. Just sheer perfection. Thank you!!

    This is because biscuits were originally cooked in a twofold process: first baked, and then dried out in a slow oven.

    There’s so little flavor that you really do need the vanilla! With so little brown sugar, there’s a lack of depth to them.

    Hey! I’m making these chocolate chip cookies as I type. The first batch has come out of the oven. They are indeed delicious and the dough is so easy to work with because it’s nice and firm. They are still slightly warm right now and they are just a bit crunchy on the outside edges but the middle is really chewy. I made sure to bake them longer then I usually would leave in a chocolate chip cookie. I wanted to make sure that I achieved the crunch factor. My husband loves crunchy cookies so I wanted to surprise him. I’m hoping that as they cool they will become thoroughly crunchy. If I have time tomorrow I will post the results on my blog. Stay tuned!!
