Now that I've got a bit more time on hand, I try to expand my skills in the kitchen.

Here's some cookies I baked on Sunday.

If you noticed, the colors are of different colors. Apart from my yet-to-be-perfected temperature watching skills, I have added cocoa powder to the subsequent batches after I found that the first plain batch came out a bit too sweet. DH insists they taste fine and would pair well with a mug of milk.

Maybe it's just me but I find that I needed to cut back around 1/2 cup of sugar from the last recipe I tried. I'll probably have to do similar sugar cut back for this new one.

See how thin it is?

There are plenty of soft, chewy cookie recipes out there but I was on a quest looking for crispy, crunchy cookies ala Famous Amos. DH and my family members prefer the crunch factor.

They store well -- been in the containers for the last 2 days and are still crisp.

I've been sneaking bites in between my crochet breaks!

Those cookies look great! I know what you mean about trying to find recipes for Famous-Amos-type crunchy cookies - they're so hard to find.

Can you share the recipes for these thin crunchy cookies?
