Chocolate Chip Rice Crispy Cookie

by jenjenk on August 26, 2010

I worked in a bakery in high school, with occasional appearances in college.  I never baked anything [I would’ve burned that place down] but worked the counters selling stuff. Even though I have the worst sweet tooth, I have a hard time going into any bakery because of its cloyingly sweet smell.  Oh, the dilemma – The need for sweet vs the smell of a bakery.  That’s probably why I started baking so much more on my own.

There was one cookie that I loved above all the cookies they had that would still cause me to return to the bakery every so often.  The Chocolate Chip Rice Crispy Cookie.  Throughout the years, I’d try to re-create the cookie using recipes that I found or basic chocolate chip cookie recipes – none of it was quite right.  It was always a little too fluffy, too sweet, too bland.  I don’t know why it took me so long to figure out what I was doing wrong [brown sugar…less flour, etc] but finally it hit me like a ton of bricks.  The perfect Chocolate Chip Rice Crispy Cookie.  It’s not exact but with the Sucanat sugar, it’s got this whole new dimension of rich flavor…I think I like it even more!

Hi Jen,

I made these last night for about 6 teenage boys (yeah, I doubled the recipe!!)At the end of the night Matt says "Uh Mom what do I put the rest of the cookies in?" I told him to use one of our large cookie containers. He replied "uh, there are only three left"!!! SCORE!!!!

I vote for using the choco crispies just because, you know, I really have to side with more chocolate.

These were yummy, Jenny! All who have come through the Fujitani household and tried them have concurred.

Ooh, that crispy crunch sounds really great. Sometimes you have to try, try, try again with new recipes until you get it.
