Crispy, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. Whew, what a mouthful, but I promise no other name would do them justice. These cookies are good; so good, in fact, that this is a repost of their recipe from a few years ago. I made them again this year to raise awareness for Cookies for Kids' Cancer and decided that I'd be holding out on y'all if I didn't share the recipe again.
My favorite part about these cookies is seeing people's reactions as they first bite into them. They're described as "crispy on the outside, yet chewy on the inside." That's why they're called Crispy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies! And then the taste tester gets a moment to think of themselves as a culinary genius for nailing the composition of the cookies on the head. I told you no other name would do...
Bottom line, is that these cookies are delicious. They are consistent from batch to batch and they don't flatten out like every other chocolate chip cookie in my repertoire. I guess they're just magical like that. If you're looking to spread a little non-denominational magic this holiday season, these cookies are for you!
Crispy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes about four dozen cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I use minis)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheets with either parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Add egg, egg yolk and vanilla and whisk until as fluffy as it will get before your arm gets tired. (I swear the secret to these is not using your stand mixer).
- Fold in flour mixture until fully incorporated followed by chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
- Use a 1" cookie scoop to evenly scoop cookies about three inches apart.
- Bake for 14-16 minutes until golden brown on the bottom/edges. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
