what makes a cookie crispy or chewy or soft?

I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies over the weekend. Right out of the oven my husband loved it, the next day when it's cooled, he said it wasn't crispy and too soft for his liking.

I read the big cookie report from but it only gave people's favorit recipes, it didn't tell which recipe makes a crispy cookie or which makes a soft or chewy cookie.

Can anyone tell me what determines the texture? And if you have a recipe for a crispy chocolate chip cookie after it's cooked please do share.
