Zen Chef's Thin and Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies


Cookies galore! Remember my search for perfect cookies? Well, my definition for a good cookie is one that is slightly chewy in the middle but crispy on the outer.

AND I think I found it! Or at least ONE of it. Who says that we need to stick to one cookie recipe! LOL.

This is my favourite cookie recipe of all times. Seriously good stuff. I couldn't stop eating it..and it actually resembles Subway cookies. AR requested me to make the cookies immediately after he finished it, which tells me that he really liked it. I have to thank Zen Chef for sharing this recipe..it really hit a spot in me.

I suspect the reason for this is the use of corn syrup. I dont know why, but it gives a slight different texture and taste to the cookies. I love this in the morning with a cup of coffee but hey, eat it anyway you like it.



Zen Chef's Thin and Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies (yielded around 30 cookies for me)
1 3/4 cups of flour
3/4 tsp of baking soda
1 tablespoon of sea salt or kosher salt
14 tablespoons of butter melted (around 220 grams I think)
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of light corn syrup
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of milk
1 1/2 cup chopped bittersweet chocolate
1 cup of crushed walnuts

1) Pre heat oven to 180C. Line Tray with baking paper.

2) Sift flour, salt and baking soda.

2) Cream butter. sugars and corn syrup. Stir in vanilla and milk. Add sifted flour mixture and fold in. Fold in chocolate and nuts. CHILL! (very important!)

3) Roll 1 tsp of dough and flatten it. Bake for 15 minutes. Remember to chill dough in between batches. Cool and transfer to baking sheet
