These chocolate chip cookies are extra thin and super crunchy! If you’re looking to make a new version of a chocolate chip cookie, give these a try.
- 2-1/4 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2-1/2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1-1/4 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.
Whisk the flour and baking soda in a small bowl. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, mix the butter and both sugars on medium speed for about 3 minutes, until pale and fluffy.
On low speed, mix in the salt, vanilla, eggs, and water. Mix until combined, for about 1 minute.
Add the flour mixture, and mix until combined.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Using a measuring tablespoon, drop cookie dough onto the prepared sheets. Bake cookies until golden brown, rotating baking sheets halfway through, for about 12-15 minutes.
Cool the cookies for 2 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
