Chips ahoy copycat cookies

Recipe in progress: the first time I made these, they were pretty good. The centers were crunchy like a Chips Ahoy cookie should be, but they had lattice edges. I figured that was due to too much coconut oil, so I decreased it. I tried another recipe with cornstarch, but that turned out to make the cookie soft which is the opposite effect I was going for. I feel good about the recipe below, I just haven’t tried it yet.

Other ideas

I saw another recipe for crunchy cookies that used corn syrup. The idea was that it added moisture without adding water. If this recipe isn’t good, I might try using brown rice syrup in place of the water. Other recipes called for egg yolk instead of egg white. However, I think the egg white provided the open texture I was looking for, plus it is somewhat listed in the ingredient list.
