These Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect cookies at any time of year. I love that these are light and crispy and taste delicious. 

These Chocolate Chip Cookies came about when I played with my favorite Traditional Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.

Hello Friends! How is your week going? We have been trying to get outdoors as often as we can and are doing the best to get back to a new normal, whatever that is. 

Chewy Chocolate Chip cookie Recipe

I have been just craving all kinds of sweets and chocolate lately so the other day I decided to “play” with my traditional cookie recipe to make a more chewy and less cake-like cookie. 

The taste is still wonderful, but because these have a little more butter, the cookie is thinner.

What is the result? Thin Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies are nice for an afternoon treat or lunch box idea.

It’s all in the dough! 

List of main ingredients:

Chocolate Chips–I use semi-sweet baking chips, but milk chocolate chips work well too! Your choice.

Butter – I always prefer real butter for this recipe. You can use unsalted if you want to reduce the sodium, but I typically use salted butter for this recipe. Margarine will work too!

Variations on this recipe.

You can add nuts to the recipe if you wish or make them with mini-chips.
