These Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies are my husband’s favourites. They are his Mom’s recipe and when she sends him a bag of frozen ones, he likes to keep them frozen and eat them straight from the freezer. He really likes his cookies crispy.
I lean a little more towards my recipe for Best Ever Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. Is there really a bad chocolate chip cookie recipe though?
Instagram friends were kind enough to send in their votes. Nicola likes Smitten Kitchen’s Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies. While Pauli-Ann and Christine nominated these Giant Crinkled Chocolate Chip Cookies. I’ve got other recipes for full-loaded oatmeal versions and one from Neiman Marcus. Shall I keep sharing them or are you all fully stocked with your own favourites? I look forward to hearing from you. The chips are down right now, let’s make more of them chocolate!
Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Yield – 6 dozen cookies
- Time – 30 – 45 minutes
- Equipment needed – baking sheets, parchment paper, small cookie scoop or tablespoon
- 1 cup butter, softened
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar (I used organic cane sugar)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 ¼ cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 cup of walnuts (I mixed in some pecans too)
- Preheat the oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment.
- Beat the butter and sugars in a stand mixer on high until light and fluffy.
- Add the eggs one at a time, beating and scraping down the sides of the bowl between each.
- Add the vanilla and beat again.
- Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix on low to combine.
- Add the chocolate chips and nuts and mix until well-combined.
- Use a small cookie scoop to gather and place dough balls evenly on the baking sheets – a dozen per sheet.
- Bake 12 minutes and remove from oven. Cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes and then use a spatula to transfer to a rack.
- Enjoy with a cold glass of milk.
Note: you don’t have to cook all the dough at once. You can form the balls and freeze them on a cookie sheet to bake off later. This is especially good if you are trying to sell your home – you can always bake a few cookies before a showing!
