Thin and Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy New Year, two weeks late.  I have been really busy with work and I have been baking, just not posting.  I made delicious brownies last week and chocolate cupcakes another day.  But today is a special birthday post for my good friend Pepper.  He is 35 today and he requested these cookies.  I cut this recipe in 1/3 and they turned out great.  They are very crispy and almost carmel like on the outsides but the insides are very soft and buttery.  They don't look very pretty, but its the taste that counts!! Overall a very delicious cookies and I will be making these again!!

Happy Birthday Pepper!!

Thin and Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies -
Yield: 10 Large Cookies
2/3 Cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
1 Stick Unsalted Butter, room temperature
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
3/4 Cup Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
6 oz Dark Chocolate or Chocolate Chips

  1. In a stand mixer, cream the brown sugar, butter and granulated sugar until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time until well incorporated. Mix in the vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, salt and baking soda and add to the butter mixture. Mix on low until the flour mixture is incorporated, and then mix in the chocolate chips.
  3. Scoop out the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet and freeze for an hour. The cookies will spread, so limit 4 cookies for each cookie sheet to give ample room. ( I just scooped about 1/4 cup size balls and put them on a plate in the freezer and cooked 4 at a time.  They really do spread so use the biggest cookie sheet you have!  Also I used an airbake pan and i still used the parchment paper...)
  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Bake until golden brown, 13 to 15 minutes, rotating the trays halfway through. Remove from the oven and cool. Remove the cookies with a flat spatula to prevent breaking.
  6. Let them cool completely, I thought they tasted better the next day. 
  7. Enjoy!!


  1. I bet those cookies would make fantastic ice cream sandwiches.

  2. I don't have a stand mixer so I'm going to just wing it with my hand mixer. You could suggest something that may work for those of us who aren't fortunate to have that stand mixer. Thanks.
