Food Network - Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are not for those living at high altitude! If you like them thin and crispy and live near sea level, here's a rich chocolate chip cookie recipe for you.

  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup super-fine sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  •  1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with a hand held mixer until light and fluffy, about 4 to 5 minutes. Beat in the egg and then the vanilla. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, to make a soft dough. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 3-inches apart, (a standard pan can accommodate about 6 cookies). 
  5. Bake the cookies until brown around the edges, about 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough.
Pancakes, anyone?
