Default Christmas Cookies

As I was baking my green and red M&M toll house cookies I started to wonder.... do most people like their toll house cookies crispy or chewy?

I like them in between crispy and chewy. What I don't care for is when they collapse around the chocolate chips. Which happened to me last summer, but I don't know why. It was the Toll House recipe and Nestle's semi-sweet choc. chips. The flour and the butter were foreign, and the oven's not so good, but otherwise...

I'm thinking you don't use 100% butter, and you make sure the dough is chilly. Refrigerate the dough while each batch is baking.

Maybe half Crisco half butter.
Edit: I found this online:

To make crispy cookies, use less flour, eggs, and brown sugar in your recipe since these ingredients hold onto moisture and make cookies softer. Also, try baking your cookies for longer and at a lower temperature than the recipe recommends, which will help dry out the cookies so they're crispier.

When they are crispy they were baked longer so they were brown around the edges when they came out of the oven.

Chewy ones look under baked in the center of the cookie when it comes out.

I like chewy.

Default Toll house cookies

I loved the way my Grandmother made Toll House cookies. Followed the recipe on the chip package. Added a little extra water and drpooed the sheet on the counter when she took it out of the oven to flatten the slightly
