Chocolate chip cookies

How do you like your cookies? Crisp, soft, chewy?

I like crisp over soft. I always used the Toll House recipe (2 eggs), but I tried Betty Crocker (1 egg) this time. I really liked the BC recipe. To make them crispier I took out 1t of the brown sugar and added 1t of white sugar to the flour.

I made 2 batches this week. The first was gone in 2 days. To make the second batch last longer I only bake a few a day. I separated the dough in several containers and put some in the fridge and froze some.

So, back to the question, how do you like your chocolate chip cookies?

I heat mine in the micro wave for a few seconds each time I eat one as I like them warm.

If it is filled with plenty of chocolate chips and walnuts or pecans, I am ready to eat any of them! They are my absolute favorite. But my goal is to make a chewy cookie with crispy edges. I don't like them to have a cake texture. (But I will still eat it!)

I like them chewy. But honestly..I like a cookie with hardly any chocolate chips or none is even better. The plain cooked dough is my fav. And thats how I roll!

I like them any way I can get them. Either tough and chewy or snappy and crispy. I make them with whole wheat flour as I feel that way they have more texture. A bit healthier, too. I use the Toll House recipe but cut the butter in half and add an extra egg and tablespoon of milk for moisture. After baking each batch an extra minute or two, I then microwave several at a time before eating, then cool, to make them extra crispy.

Soft, very soft. I, too, use the Toll House recipe and take them out of the oven before crispy. Like 1956, I occasionally heat themóbig yum to soft, warm, and gooey. (Iím always counting calories and have no willpower, but I find it easy to say no-thank-you to crispy cookies).

I like the Toll House recipe, and I like them soft. I have to have gluten free, and I found that I have to bake them a minute or two longer, but they are still soft and taste just as good.

the NYT recipe posted on the Brown Eyed Baker site. She has great recipes and a nice blog about her family and dogs.
https://www.browneyedbaker.com/the-n...-chip-cookies/

She has compiled a lot of other chocolate chip cookies according to how people like them, soft, chewy or crisp.

While you are on that site think about trying the Better-Than-Brownies recipe.

When I made them I used the recipe on the Nestles chip bag but doubled the ingredients except the chips. It made them go further. I'm not sure how I like my cookies because I somehow prefer the raw dough...I know the health dangers.
But did you know in Europe they don't even keep their eggs refrigerated?

I like mine right out of the oven and more soft than crispy.

mhugs -- Here is an article about eggs and having to be refrigerated. If you have your own chickens or get eggs from the neighbor, likely you don't refrigerate them.

I like them sort of crispy, but bendable in the middle. I use a recipe I got from a second grade student years ago. She brought them for a birthday treat and I told her how delicious they were. Her mom wrote out the recipe for me. I double it, use a cookie scoop and freeze the dough in balls. That way when DH or I get a hankering for cookies I can bake up about 6-8 of them and we can eat them fresh it is a way to manage portions, too!

Betty Crocker recipe from the red cookbook. If you look online it's the 1969 version recipe.

They are more soft than crispy (unless you are not wearing your hearing aids and don't hear the timer)
