Crispy chocolate chip cookies are failure

I just bought a big tub of cookie dough, and I'm eating a fresh chocolate chip cookie as I type. One handed typing for fat people.

There's a company, Tate's Bakeshop, that makes the absolute crispiest cookies EVAR! They are the best commercially baked cookies I've ever eaten. Thin, crisp, buttery - just excellent. I especially love the chocolate chip ones, but I would love them even more without the chips, just the cookie. I will have to give this recipe a try and leave out the chocolate chips.

Sold everywhere, I think. I can get them here in NorCal.

If the article didn't simply repeat the directions for Toll House Cookies, it's stupid.

Thin and gooey is what you want to aim for

Chocolate chip cookies are like pizza. Even the bad ones are good. Unless they are just straight up burnt.

They are thin & crispy because of the 'large' amount of baking soda.

Why settle for thin and crispy chocolate-chip cookies when you could make thick, chewy chocolate-chip cookies instead?

This method of baking chocolate chip cookies was preferred by Hitler.
 
2019-03-16 12:20:27 AM  
Is this one of those British things? Like what we call cookies they call biscuits. Maybe what they call cookies we call crackers.

Because crackers should be crispy. Cookies should not.

If you made thin and crispy chocolate chip cookies, you dun farked up.
 
2019-03-16 02:52:58 AM  
I was planning on making some this weekend. I chill the dough for at least a few hours after mixing specifically to keep them thicker.

Agreed. That's how they're supposed to be. Bonus points if they're still warm from the oven.

Alton Brown taught us how to make all three chocolate chip cookie variants (thin/crisp, dense/chewy, light/fluffy) over a decade ago.

I really hate chocolate chips. They ruin anything.

Accuse food of that which you are guilty.
 
2019-03-16 09:35:45 AM  
Why the fark would I want a thin chocolate chip cookie?!  They're supposed to be gooey and tasty.  Not crisp like a potato chip.
 
2019-03-16 09:37:01 AM  
What's the point? Who wants 'em thin and crispy?
 
2019-03-16 09:44:05 AM  
I like variety in my chocolate chip cookies.  Thin and crispy is in the rotation.
 
2019-03-16 10:50:27 AM  
Toll House is the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.  Why would anyone need anything different?
 
2019-03-16 11:07:35 AM  
TL;DR  Chewy cookies or go fark yourself.
 
2019-03-16 11:26:19 AM  
Protip: baking cookies is a race, between the butter melting and the starch gelatenizing.  If you want crispy cookies (meaning you're a horrible monster) then use less butter...

Interesting twist on the creaming. I don't normally like my Choco chip cookies crispy, but I may steal the idea for some gingersnaps

I'm a little surprised there's more righteous indignation in this thread compared to the BBQ one. My dad (born Memphis, raised Nashville) claimed BBQ was Holy War in the Carolinas. Chocolate chip cookies are great as long as they're not stale, or have motherfarking oatmeal in them.
 
2019-03-16 12:55:57 PM  
first of all,no.  i made thin crispy chocolate chip cooks accidentally once--i melted the butter and that made them very flat.  if i'm going to have a cookie,i want a thick slightly underbaked one.

As a native SCian, naw, BBQ is settled. There are some freaks who like vinegar sauce or mustard sauce, but that's not BBQ, it's just freak vinegar sauce or freak mustard sauce.

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are good if you like 'em extra chewy. It's like the difference between normal chips and kettle-cooked, sometimes you're in the mood for one or the other.  But crispy chocolate chip cookies are an abomination unto Gawd and should be treated as such.

Did submitter who doesn't like kimchi also submit this? STOP IT.

The chocolate chip cookie was invented by the American chef Ruth Graves Wakefield and chef Sue Brides in 1938. She invented the recipe during the period when she owned the Toll House Inn, in Whitman, Massachusetts


In her cookbook, the author of the article, Stella Parks, argues persuasively that this origin is false. The Wakefield origin story is a marketing invention. Not that she wasn't a real person and not that she didn't create that recipe, but she was merely tweaking older recipes and chocolate chunks had been used in cookies for decades. Then, Nestle brought some marketing hype to the matter that made it semi-legendary in order to sell more chocolate.

Crispy chocolate chip cookies aren't my thing, but Stella Parks is pretty great. Every recipe I've made of hers has been stellar (har, har... I bet no ones ever made that joke before...). Last night I made a chocolate cake with marshmallow buttercream icing and a caramel sauce on top for my wife's birthday.  All recipes from her book, and it tastes amazing.
 
2019-03-16 06:26:13 PM  
This is double the recipe I've already been using for the last ~30 years... Except still 1 egg.

Stella is awesome. She even takes the time to respond to comments on the Serious Eats website. I made her butter pie crust and it didn't turn out as good as I expected. She took the time to trouble-shoot it with me because she really wanted the crust to work for me. Turns out I was using a local flour with too high of a protein content. The second attempt was perfect. Her book is incredible, and she really did her homework with the history behind the different foods. I trust all of her recipes. This thin and crispy cookie is on my list.

The wife bought her book for Christmas so I can attest to how awesome her stuff is.

Stop making thin and crispy chocolate chip cookies. Hardly anyone wants them.

Yup it's settled.  Eastern North Carolina BBQ is the only BBQ.  The rest is fine, I guess, but it ain't BBQ.

Actually, thin and crispy chocolate chip cookies are what happened when I tried and failed to make good ones.
