That sounds pretty close to my recipe but I'd have to dig it out in order to check it. I always do the chocolate chips "to taste," meaning a whole bunch, and I add more if it seems like some dough balls are lacking in the chocolate department.
But I prefer my chocolate chip cookies thick and softer - so what I do is refrigerate the dough after mixing everything together so that the cookies won't spread so much, and I form them into balls before baking them.
For the OP's crispy cookies, I find the recipe without refrigeration, and without being rolled into tight balls, spread out and when as they cool off, become crispy.
I have been told my chocolate chip cookies are "good enough to sell" by those who believe that to be the highest form of flattery. (And of course flattery will get any visitor another plate of cookies
I do not put nuts in my cookies, or, (horrors), oatmeal. I don't mind nuts in chocolate chip cookies, but oatmeal - I mean, why detract from the chocolate, for pete's sake?
is another chocolate chip recipe that I haven't actually tried, but I don't see how it could possibly go wrong.
