I just love this site. I have a request please! I need to know how to make "crunchy" chocolate chip cookies. I have tried but I just can't do it. Thank you, Charlene

Hi Charlene, I'm glad you are enjoying my recipes. I don't have a crunchy cookie developed at this time but I found this one that has great reviews. If you want to cut the ingredients in half it looks like you could easily do that. To cut an egg in half, just use the egg white and leave the yolk out. The yolk leads to a more chewy cookie instead of crunchy. Copy and paste this link into your browser and let me know how it goes for you :)
