This super easy crispy chocolate chip cookies recipe is the perfect cookie for those who love their treats snappy and crisp!
Butter and sugar was flying left and right and groups of people were crouching down on the floor working as hard as they can with the hand mixers that had just arrived the day before. The three tables that we had set up carefully with ingredients and giant metal mixing bowls were in shambles but everyone was laughing and shouting and having a great time. All I could do was marvel at the chaos that was happening in the middle of workshop I was leading at the Pinterest employee conference called KnitCon. I reached for a Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookie sample that I had made to nibble on and walked over to one of the Pinterest employees who seemed to be struggling with the rock hard cold butter that I had forgotten to pull out early enough to warm to room temperature. I showed her how to soften butter by taking a chunk of it out of the bowl and smashing it between two pieces of butter wrapper paper with the palm of her hands. She immediately brightened up and went to work. This was exactly the sort of madness that I love to be involved in. (Jump directly to the recipe.)

I baked up 5 batches of different cookies for folks to see and taste, including a typical ?homemade? cookie made from the back of the chocolate chip bag recipe. I also brought enough baking supplies for 15 students to make cookie dough in the hands on class so they could take it home after the conference. 15 minute...
