I have been baking Toll House Cookies for years now. Know the recipe by heart. But they are turning out too flat. What do I need to do to change that?

Make sure your butter is not melted.

Margarine will give you a "puffier" cookie than butter does.
Alton Brown, The Food Network did an episode of Good Eats "dedicated" to Puffy VS Cripy cookies.  I am sure you can get the info from their website.  There were at least a half dozen different changes made to a basic recipe to get the desired result.
