chocolate chip cookie redux

necessity really is the mother of invention. i absolutely needed chocolate chip cookies at 5 p.m. on friday when we were scheduled to leave the house by 7 p.m. clearly not enough time for the standard soften the butter dance that usually is step 1 of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. i hesitantly googled a few melted butter chocolate chip cookies before landing on the below recipe from all recipes that i of course adapted with coconut oil which just barely whispers coconut. these make a very flat cookie with crispy edges and a chewy center. be warned that they do tend to crumble quite easily.  i packed a baggie full for atty's museum date and found them in pieces. luckily, two-year-olds and their mamas are not the least but fussy and measure true cookie integrity by it's ability to delay a meltdown. 

recipe: chocolate chip cookie redux (adapted from all recipes)

2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 stick salted butter, melted
4 tbsp coconut oil, melted (plus extra to grease pans)
