Do you hate cake-y cookies? Here's a tip for getting your cookies to be crispy and chewy, not fluffy and cake-like. This tip is for regular chocolate chip cookies, but can apply to similar recipes. Template:Sidead


  • 1 cup unsalted butter (113g)
  • 1 1/8 cup flour (144g)
  • 1/2 tsp. bicarbonate of soda (2.3g)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (1.38g)
  • 3/4 cup sugar - half light brown, half regular
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 bag chocolate chips


  1. Do not use an electric mixer. This whips too much air into the batter, which results in cake-y cookies.
  2. Let the butter soften first at room temperature for about 1 hour.
  3. Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl with a whisk.
  4. Use a wooden spoon to stir the softened butter, but not too much. Add your sugar and stir until incorporated. Add egg and vanilla and stir well.
  5. Add dry ingredients in 3 increments, stirring after each addition with your wooden spoon until blended. Finally, add chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
  6. Spoon onto cookie sheet, bake in preheated 375 degree oven until brown, about 9 minutes, and then cool on rack.


  • To make cookies extra crispy and with an even better texture, substitute 1/8 cup of the flour with 1/4 cup oats, ground in a coffee grinder or food processor until fine but not powdery (about 5 seconds).
  • Use a Silpat (French silicone baking mat) for really great crispiness without danger of burning the bottoms of the cookies.


  • Wear oven mitts when taking out cookies . Be careful not to burn yourself if you have rubber mitts.
