How To Make Your Cookies Crispy or Chewy

By Chef Yadira Stamp

How do you like your cookies – crispy or chewy?

Everyone has their preference on how their cookie should be – crispy or chewy? Whatever your idea of a perfect cookie is, understanding the science can help you develop your go-to recipe.
If you want your cookies to be crispier, add more butter to the mix. The higher ratio of butter and granulated sugar helps the overall texture and shape of the cookie.
If you prefer your cookies to be chewier, use bread flour instead of all-purpose flour, and brown sugar instead of granulated sugar.
