National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

I celebrated National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day (August 4th in the U.S.) by making this delicious treat for my family. It had been a while since I made these cookies—no wonder I was craving them so much!

Luckily, I always keep a good stock of chocolate chips in the pantry. I usually choose to use the semi-sweet variety of chocolate chips when making these cookies, though some people prefer to use dark chocolate.

Crispy Cookies

I like my cookies to be crispy, and one of the ways I achieve that is by combining white granulated sugar with dark brown sugar. However, you're welcome to use change the balance of white vs. dark sugar, per your preference.

I also threw in some chopped walnut to add a nutty flavor to the cookies. They turned out great!

Make sure to keep the cookies inside an airtight container in order to preserve the crispiness. By the way, if you prefer your cookies to be chewy or soft, all you have to do is shape thicker cookies on the pan and then bake them in under 15 minutes. I hope you and your family will enjoy them as much as we do!

This looks like an interesting recipe. I already have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I love, but this one looks like it could be pretty good too, though I'm not really a fan of corn syrup at all.

Hi Liz, thanks for your nice comment. I think nobody can say no to chocolate chips cookies :) As I'm replying to you now they all gone. I might have to take the one I kept in the freezer and bake another round. Thanks for stopping by!

This is an interesting twist on a familiar recipe. I was intrigued by your use of two kinds of sugar and I wasn't sure what dark corn syrup is. As always the step by step illustrations are much appreciated.
