    My cookies came out so light and fluffy, and of course delicious, though I can't seem to find out why I can't make them flatter, round and chewy...I have altered the ingredients, temperature even amount of mixing of dough, though cookies still come out fluffy instead of round and chewy.

      Also, I only did 2 cups of flour by mistake (instead of 2 1/4). That batch of cookies spread out and flattened much more while remaining crisp on the outside and soft in the middle!

      What about pressing the dough balls down flatter before baking?

      If you want flatter cookies, use equal amounts of brown sugar and granulated sugar. Also try using a small cookie scooper. It will keep the round shape. Another suggestion is to chill the dough for a few minutes.

    if you don't want cookies that spread so thin, replace the 2 + 1/4 cup flour with 2 + 3/4 flour instead - it's probably too little flour in this recipe that's causing it to spread.

    My cookies came out very flat. They spread so thin that they had holes. I'm not sure what I messed up on. Did I over mix? Should I have chilled the dough first? Was expecting a fool proof recipe and came out with a disaster worse than the last recipe I was using. :(

      whoops, my comment was meant to be a reply to yours: if you don't want cookies that spread so thin, replace the 2 + 1/4 cup flour with 2 + 3/4 flour instead - it's probably too little flour in this recipe that's causing it to spread.

    THIS IS THE BEST RECIPE EVER!! THE ONLY CHANGE I MADE WAS INSTEAD OF 2 LARGE EGGS, I USED 3 MEDIUM EGGS BECAUSE THATS ALL I HAD. I FOLLWED EVERYTHING ELSE AS FAR AS INGREDIENTS ALL THE SAME. MY BAKING TIME WAS 350°F FOR 10MIN THEN IF IT STILL WASN'T AS DONE AS I LIKED, I BAKED THEM FOR 2 MINUTES MORE.

    I have not the slightest idea as to what I did wrong. I followed the recipe ingredients and directions to a T, I baked my cookies at/preheated the oven to 350 like the directions stated to do and baked them for 9-10 minutes until golden brown started, but they ended up being waayy TOO SOFT like they were still doughy. They would squish up and fall apart before even taking them off of the baking sheet... ?!? Is there something wrong with my oven? What should I said it to instead if anything?? please help me.

      I had the same problem. I chilled my dough for about 30 mins and also left them to bake for about 12 mins. You might want to play around with it a little until you get what you feel to be just right for you.

      Also, and I made this common mistake myself sweetie, allow your cookies to cool down completely before trying them. I know the aroma is absolutely calling your name, but those few minutes can make all the difference in the final.products' texture!

      You need to check your oven temp to see if it heats to correct temp. They sell them at grocery stores or Walmart for $2 - $3.

    YUM! I used King Arthur Flour and Harris Teeter brand chocolate chips. They turned out SO good. Slightly crispy on the outside and super soft and chewy on the inside! I maked mine for about 14 minutes. Thank you!
