Crispy cookies?

Anyone knows how to get cookies lite and crispy, (melt in your mouth kind) and yet not hard?

In general, using a lot of butter, and rolling them very thin (or if making drop cookies, flattening them out very thin).
Of course, there's a lot more involved - It depends on the individual recipe, ie, its ingredients, mixing method, baking time, etc.

What merstar said!

You may have to try a few different recipes to find one that works for you.

For a chocolate chip recipe, this might work for you. Alton's recipes are tried and true.
