Carol's Cookies, how does she get them to stay tall, not flat?

abaker | Feb 2, 200902:57 PM     93

I am trying to figure out a couple of things about Carol's Cookies...these are those huge, tall and round cookies, weighing about 7 ounces from Highland Park, Illiniois. Have your had these cookies???
Has anyone else tried to figure out her secret to keeping them so puffed up...and not cakey. These are not flat cookies, they are about 1.5 inches high and 4.5 inches wide. I love these cookies...but am getting sick of paying for the shipping charges...so, help me figure out what she does. Has anyone else made cookies that are not flat?? What is the secret, less butter, is it the way your combine ingredients or the mixing of ingredients?????
HELP ME figure this out!!!
Thanks!!
