Here's the best recipe I've ever tried...admittedly I haven't tried many, and I've only made this one twice and both times I used Nestle white morsels, but it's still the best:

The first time I thought they were near perfect, just a little too sweet (I know the white chips didn't help).
The next time I cut back the sugar and it did the trick, but I can't find the paper I wrote the notes on...
I think I removed a Tb. of white sugar and 3 Tb. of brown...OR that's what I had planned to do, but when the time came, I may have removed 2 Tb. of each.
Also, the first time I used vanilla bean paste (Nielsen-Massey) and the second time, vanilla extract...Oh man...what a difference, the paste wins big time. 
I will DEFINITELY make these again...

AIf you live in the US and are near a SAMs club, then pick up a bag of their brown sugar. The cookie recipe on the back is amazing!! Mine have never turned out flat and they are soft. Or I can type it out for you, it's a simple recipe. :)

In my opinion, if you don't want your cookies to be hard and flat, you should use baking powder. For example, I can offer you this Soft chocolate chips cookies recipe. When I make cookies based on it, they are always very soft, not to mention the fact that they are tasty!
