Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe photo courtesy of not applicable

Unlike in recipes for chewy cookies, we used more butter and less brown sugar to produce the ideal thin and crisp cookie.

    These are delicious, crispy cookies and so easy to make!! I used the exact ingredients, but instead of making them with 2 heaping tablespoons as recipe calls for, I used my Oxo medium cookie scoop that holds 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough. So slightly smaller cookies and greater yield (44 cookies vs. 36). I placed 11 cookies per baking sheet (4/3/4) which left enough space in between. And because the dough mounds were smaller, I baked for 16 minutes total (not 18) and rotated half way through. I also chilled dough briefly to make scooping easier, and left cookies on sheet for a few minutes before placing on rack to cool. This is a GREAT recipe for crispy chocolate chip cookies!!

    My new favorite! I didn't have unsalted butter, so I put a half tsp salt instead of a whole. I also added a half cup of flour and only baked for 11 minutes. They are flat, but really tasty!

    Size might be a bit too big for me.. The bigger they look, the closer they get to supermarket's ones! I wanna be able to make the difference and the people that I bake them for too! ;P
