I need some hlepm with my cookies. I am what some might call anal when it comes to my baking. Everything is measured and followed to a tee. Latlely I hav run into the problem of my cookies, Toll House Chocolate Chip, being flat as a pancake and I cannot understand why.

Can anyone help out with suggestions??

Thanks

I answered - well, tried to  Wink - your question on the other forum.
Right here, on this site, you;ll find a really good section that answers questions like that
And there's an 800 to call during the day where you can talk to baking experts.

I don't like flat cookies so I add a bit more flour than the recipe calls for.

Hi Liz, were you able to figure out what went wrong? Maybe the cookie sheet was still too warm if all ingredients were fresh.

On this site there is a page under "Resources" called Baking Chocolate Chip Cookies Just Right....It will give you exact measurements as to the kind of cookies you want i.e. "soft and cakey', "soft and Chewy", "thin and crispy", and 'puffy and fluffy".  Hope this helps.  It also helps that your baking sheet is cold.  After each batch, I rinse my sheets in cold water and start fresh.

I never thought about cooling off the baking sheet.  Other than it sitting to wait, cold water would help a lot!

A friend of mine says that she always adds more flour to the dough.

Are your ingredients fresh?  Check the dates on the packages.  That could make a difference.
