Oatmeal and snickerdoodles soft - everything else crunchy

How is this not known?

:-)

Thanks for the disclaimer at the end. I was partially triggered... because I agree w/your boys. Chewy all the way!


Though I guess it depends on the type of cookie, since chewy graham crackers would be disgusting. Then again, maybe those count as biscuits and not cookies? Either way, chewy should win by a landslide.

They should be very slightly crunchy around the edges and chewy in the center.

Butter is what makes the chewy, baking them just right gets the crunch around the edge.

That season is coming again, I'll have to dig out my chocochiprecipe.

Cookies: Chewy or Crunchy?


That's a good question.

I like both, but only because I have encountered it. Both is hard to attain.

My mom makes this cookie that she calls a Toll House ("Tollhouse", for those of you suffering from the ME) cookie that is a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie, and it's flaky and crunchy for the first 2mm or so and then it's moist and chewy.

I ask her about the recipe and she swears it comes from the Quaker Oats cylinder. So there is already a problem there.

It's the single number-one conspiracy that has plagued me my whole life, that damned recipe. I can't replica5te it, despite being an experienced baker.

It's weird.

I disagree.

As for the OP ...

It depends on the cookie for me.

I like my cookies to be more soft on the whole, but sometimes they need to have a bit of crisp to them.

But think about it ... should a proper snickerdoodle be crunchy? On the other hand, if you are making gingerbread and it doesn't firm up and get even a bit crisp, your house will fall down. And peppernuts without being crunchy?

You have a really good point.

My two tricks for approaching predictability in texture are:

1) In multi-egg recipes I start with removing one yolk and replacing with a white: extravagant but effective for crunch. I then tweak the ratio further. This can be reversed for experimenting with "chew".

2) Most 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon drop-cookies can be made outwardly crunchy by rolling in sugar and then 12 minutes @ 325. This is where you start to get in to crunchy on the outside chewy on the inside.

No- it's on the chocolate chip bag-that's the original!

I know, that's why I was saying that there's already a problem there. It's like she lives in some alternate universe where Quaker and Nestle' are buddies and cookies are perfect.

I could scream.

I always like crunchy-but like you-slightly chewy in middle; fresh from the oven.

But, really I prefer homemade chocolate pie-egg white top toasted with real crust - not graham cracker crumbs.

I had to say it-I like pies much better; homemade.

Crunchy if you dip cookies in milk.

Chewy if you don't.

Crunchy...as in using butter in the recipe.

BTW...a nice change from plain ole choco chip is butterscotch walnut. Trust me

Depends on the cookie. Molasses cookies are supposed to be soft in the middle and gingersnaps are supposed to be crunchy, but they're basically the same recipe just with different cooking times.

I personally prefer the molasses cookies, but I like my chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips to be crunchy.

Chewy in the middle, slightly crunchy on the outside.

If I'm having a dry crunchy cookie, into the milk it goes.

A perfect cookie is a mix. The outside has this crisp, crunchy layer that once bitten through reveals the ooey, gooey innards of the perfect cookie.

When you say 'crunchy' are we talking Chips Ahoy crunchy?

I personally prefer just a little texture on the outside but chewy in the middle.

my favorite are chewy Chips Ahoy images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com...

Im not one of those "organic vegan is life" kinda guys. I like bad things. Things like twinkies, reeses, and oreos. In quantities that would make you gasp, matter of fact. So this isn't a holy temple body speaking here....

...chewy chips ahoy have something in them that just feels like everything wrong int he world. I donn't get sick, exactly. But my heartburn will kill me. Its like eating a zebra cake....the immediate result is a feeling like i have eaten something that is not meant for me to consume.

I think the Mandela Effect has taken hold... I've never had a snickerdoodle that wasn't crunchy, unless it was hot, just out of the oven.

i know just what you mean as i feel that same way with any diet soda, or any artificial sugar sweetened treat, essentially a reaction to aspartame in its many incarnations,

cant say ive felt that way with chips ahoy though, odd...
