She used one control recipe and altered each variation slightly to show the (sometimes drastic) differences in final cookie product.

1-Added Flour

This recipe uses almost double the amount of flour which makes for a denser, crumblier cookie.

2. Only Granulated Sugar

Source: Handletheheat.com

A recipe using only granulated sugar will make flatter, slightly chewy cookies that are crispier on the outer edges.

3. Only Brown Sugar

Source: Handletheheat.com

A recipe using only brown sugar which makes for a thick, soft, butterscotch-flavoured cookie.

4. Melted Butter

Using melted (and cooled) butter in your cookie recipe will result in a relatively flat cookie with a shinier, crackled top, not unlike most brownie recipes.

5. Only Baking Soda

This recipe is actually the control, using only baking soda and produces a "standard" cookie.

6. Only Baking Powder

This recipe is actually the control, using only baking soda and produces a "standard" cookie.

7. Baking Soda and Baking Powder

Using both baking powder and soda makes a crisp cookie that is soft in the middle.

8. 24-hour Chilled Dough

This cookie used the control recipe, but also chilled the dough itself for 24 hours before baking which made a thicker and chewier cookie.

And because 8 variations isn't enough, here are six more!

9. Added Cornstarch

Despite the natural thickening properties of cornstarch, these cookies still have crisp edges with soft and slightly gooey centres.

10. Dark, Non-stick Pan

On a dark pan the cookies tend to spread less and brown more quickly than on parchment paper or a baking mat.

11. Shortening

Despite its bad rep, shortening doesn't add as fake a flavour as many expect, but instead it produces a soft and thick textured cookie.

12. Cake Flour

Source: Handletheheat.com

While these cookies look fairly crispy, the added cake flour kept them soft and with the spread were almost too soft.

13. Bread Flour

Source: Handletheheat.com

Bread flour adds an extra thick and chewy texture to cookies, perfect for a tall glass of milk.

14. Extra Egg Yolk

The extra yolk in this recipe makes for an extra soft cookie with a decent spread and plenty of chewiness.

These variations focus on substitution for dietary restrictions because, cookies for all!

15. Whole Wheat

Source: Handletheheat.com

Substituting whole wheat flour make for a firmer cookie with a bonus nutty flavour.

16. Gluten Free

Source: Handletheheat.com

The gluten-free flour in these cookies made for a thinner, crispier cookie with surprisingly few differences otherwise.

17. Coconut Oil (Non-Dairy)

Source: Handletheheat.com

Substituting coconut oil makes for a greasier cookie but extremely chewy and soft ones, at that.

19. Flax Egg (Vegan)

Source: Handletheheat.com

The flax egg (flax meal and water) makes for a very thin and somewhat grainy cookie, but a vegan cookie nonetheless!

18. Maple Syrup

Source: Handletheheat.com

Using maple syrup rather than sugar (for those who cannot eat processed sugar) makes for a wet dough, but the sticky nature keeps the cookies from spreading and instead made a fairly dense cookie.

And finally, this comparison shows differences in technique that influence the final cookie from oven temperature to baking sheet material.
