How can I bake crisp cookies?

I want to bake some cookies for my father because his birthday will come next weekend.
He really likes crisp cookies. However I've never baked any cookies, so I 'd like you to tell me some knacks of baking them.
I really want to please him by his favorite things!

I would expect most cookie recipes to yield crisp cookies. IF a recipe is for soft cookies, it will usually say so in the name. e.g. Soft Chocolate Chip cookies.

What kind of cookies are his favorite?

Look for a recipe that uses white sugar, not brown sugar.
Look for a recipe that uses butter, not shortening.
Look for a recipe with no eggs or just egg whites, not yolks.

I'm sure there are other things, but these are the ones I know.

Also for crisp cookies, bake just a little longer than for a chewy cookie.

Also look for cookies with baking soda and not baking powder.

Here are a few really nice cookie recipes. Just click on the links and you will go there. This should fill the requirement.

1. Scotch Shortbread Cookies Recipe | Taste of Home Recipes

2. Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe | Taste of Home Recipes

3. Spritz Cookie Recipe, How To Make Spritz Cookies, Spritz Christmas Cookie, Spritzgeback Cookies, Cookie Press Recipes, Cookie Recipes, Christmas Cookie Recipes, Christmas Baking

4. Hamantashen Recipe - Allrecipes.com (the filling for these cookies can be any jam you want. Traditionally, these are made with either poppy seed filling, as in the recipe, or peach preserves as the filling. They are very good with most fruit fillings.
