MOUTHWATERING CRISPY CHEWY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Is there anything not to like about a chocolate chip cookie? It really might be the perfect dessert — especially when it comes to this recipe. These cookies are the best of both worlds. They are nice and crisp on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle.

These chewy crispy chocolate chip cookies also have a great chocolate ratio. They are not overpowered with chocolate but have chocolate chips in each and every bite. The recipe calls for semisweet chocolate chips, which give the cookies a tasty balance of sweetness and holds up well against the sweet cookie dough.

HOW TO MAKE CRISPY CHEWY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

1. PREHEAT THE OVEN

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and prepare a cookie sheet with grease or parchment. Set aside.

2. DRY INGREDIENTS

In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. WET INGREDIENTS

Cream the melted butter and the sugars together until it is very creamy. Add in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk, and continue to mix until light and creamy. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined. Stir in the chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.

4. FORM COOKIES AND BAKE

Form the cookie dough into balls about 1 teaspoon in size, or use a cookie scoop to form the dough. Drop them on the cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes, until the edges are golden brown. It may look gooey in the middle, but that’s cool. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wired rack.

FAQ

WHAT MAKES THE COOKIES CRISPY OR CHEWY?

The secret to getting the perfect textured cookie is all in the ingredients. Brown sugar keeps the cookies soft and moist, while white sugar makes them crisp up. The melted butter also adds to the chewy factor. Plus, the cooking time can impact the outcome. Cook the cookies longer for a crispy cookie and shorter for a chewy cookie.

CAN I USE DARK CHOCOLATE CHIPS?

Yes! Any kind of chocolate chip can be used in this recipe. Dark chocolate would make the cookies have a more savory flavor, while white chocolate would up the sweetness level.

CAN I FREEZE THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS COOKIES?

These cookies freeze incredibly well. Make the cookies as you would and let the cookies cool completely. When they are cool, place them in an airtight container or plastic bag and place them in the freezer. They should last about 2-3 months in the freezer.
