I know they are so simple (I use milk chocolate chips and chopped pecans) but I can never get them quite how I like them - crispy/chewy, not soft.

Do you use butter or margarine? I believe butter makes them more crispy.

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?

Here is another chocolate chip recipe that I haven't actually tried, but I don't see how it could possibly go wrong.

I just use the Toll House recipe on the bag.

I grew up down the road from the actual Toll House...it's what I'm used to and it's what I love (nuthin better than when they're hot out of the oven with a big glass of ice cold milk).

Default The search for a perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe

My friends and I are on a mission to find the very best chocolate chip cookie recipe. Every week we have been baking two or three different recipes and our family and friends are the taste testers.

We've baked well known recipes, famous recipes and family recipes that have been contributed.

Does anyone have a favorite chocolate chip recipe to contribute to our study? I will be happy to share results of our testing.

I'm a BIG baker (well, I used to be) and I am going to be totally honest - I've never found one that beat the tollhouse one on the bag of chips.


Your results will be interesting!! More importantly, how to do I get a spot on the testing panel??

Nestle tollhouse, but I always add my own twist to it(more butter, different ratio of brown sugar to white sugar, different chocolate chips, more salt, more flavor(extracts I add).
