Cookie edges turning out crispy

Occasionally when baking cookies, the edges of the cookies will turn out thin and crispy, instead of chewy and "rounded out". This almost always happens on my oatmeal raisin cookies in particular.

I'm not sure what causes this. Anyone have any speculation as to why this happens?
