but what I really mean is all the time, I wish I had like 10 stomachs. As a self-proclaimed foodie, I just want to eat! I`m always excited about trying new foods or new restaurants. I think life is too good to not eat all the good food in life!! Weird, coming from the girl who orders the same exact drink when I buy bubble/boba milk tea…haha. To be fair, it`s milk tea. I don`t care much for random combinations of different teas or milk, like lavender milk tea or almond green tea. But, I always try new and unique foods!
These are NOT ORDINARY chocolate chip/chunk cookies. So, please, because you go, “Really?! ANOTHER self-proclaimed-great chocolate chip cookie recipe?!!” hear me out. These are NOT your ordinary chocolate chip cookies, because they`re ultrathin. Like, really really thin. Not the classic CCC. I repeat, not. I`m not saying these are the HOMG-BEST chocolate chip cookies in the world, because I do not classify this recipe with those classic CCC recipes. It`s more of an amazing twist on the classic CCC. One of the best, in my opinion.
They`re not super thick or chewy. In fact, they`re extremely thin and crispy. And, seriously, one of my ultimate favorite cookie recipes to ever exist in this universe. Nope, that was not an exaggeration either. I`m being totally and completely honest with you.
Now, we all have different cookie preferences. I LOVE cookies that are crispy and crunchy. I`m not really a fan of those thick and super chewy cookies, since they make me want to gulp down a glass of milk after just one bite. My idea chocolate chip cookies are crispy on the outside and chewy in the center. (Heads up: I`ll be sharing my favorite recipes for these soon, so watch out!)
Before I dive into these cookies, a short back story: I once went to a restaurant, called The Misfit Restaurant + Bar in Santa Monica Promenade and had one of these best cookies in my life. They were very thin chocolate chip cookies with lots of sea salt sprinkled on top. I`ve been searching everywhere for a recipe. When I bought Alice Medrich’s Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy book and saw how much this recipe resembled the ones from the restaurant, I was embarrassingly ecstatic. They weren`t the same, but it didn`t matter, because I had just found one of my favorite recipes, ever.
I made them immediately. Then, again and again and again. It wasn`t just me who love them, though. When my sister first tried these cookies, she told me to make them again the next day. So, I did. My friend told me to always make these for her. So, I did. It`s seriously a killer recipe!
They are HUGE (about 5 inches in diameter) cookies. They`re so crispy and crunchy…gah…I`m in heaven when I eat these. As you can see from the pictures, they`re very thin. I actually wanted them to be even thinner, but this was the thinnest I could make them. I like using those dark chocolate truffle chocolate bars from Trader Joe’s, but any of your favorite chocolate bars or chips will do!
You don`t have to let the cookie batter rest. They`ll be delicious either way, but the rest gives them this amazing, caramel-like, taste. I`ve baked these cookies so many times, with different resting periods, and they turn out beyond amazing every time. So, of course, if you can, let the dough rest. However, if you just want these dang cookies in your tummy, just bake them right away! 🙂
This is seriously one of my most used recipe and coming from a food blogger…that just shows you how much I love these cookies. Top with a couple sprinkles of sea salt and you`ll be in cookie heaven. The fragrant of these cookies from the brown butter is also a killer. Don`t say I didn`t warn ya!
