Does anyone out there have a good chocolate chip cookie recipe? I had one but for some reason they just want to spread out more than they used to. I would like a recipe where the cookies stay thick while baked. I hate it when the cookies spread out and get real thin. Does anyone have any good thick chocolate chip cookie recipes?
I love the recipe on the back of the ghirardelli bag. Also, if you refrigerate the dough before you bake it, it helps eliminate the spreading.
Check your baking powder/ baking soda. If you've had it for a long time or if it is expired it will keep your cookies from rising.
Refrigeration before baking helps but if you want to use the dough immediately, up the flour.
Are they all spreading? Even the first pan in the oven? Be sure, if you re-use pans to let them cool completely! If you have to, run cold water over the back to cool them down.
Have you changed what you're using as the fat? I always use butter. If you're using margarine, be sure to only use margarine that has 100 calories total, and 100 calories from fat. Never use a lite margarine or a spread.
I found this one on here and haven't made anything else. Love it....something with the pudding mix I guess. I even tried butterscotch chips and butterscotch pudding mix, it was really good.
This is my favorite (and everyone else who tries them)! The name caught my eye and they come out thick and soft...mmm now I want some!
