Everyone’s always talking about a chewy, gooey chocolate chip cookie. And sure, we love those, too. But have you ever tried Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies?! We think they’re the most slept-on version of this chocolatey classic there is! The name says it all! These sweet discs are satisfyingly crispy, and sprinkled with just a touch of sea salt for that ultimate sweet-and-salty combination. They’re oh-so-good on their own, but we also think they’d be quite delightful sprinkled over a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Don’t you?! Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best new way to think about your favorite classic cookie!
