Chocolate chip cookies always turn out puffy

CamiKitti | Jan 19, 2014 11:38 PM

I use a hand mixer every time that I made them, and the cookies turn out too fluffy, perhaps cake-like. How can I adjust the ingredients to make it less fluffy and more crunchy on the outsides (but still soft in the middle)? I have a Kitchenaid Mixer now with a metro beater blade attachment, so I wonder if there will be a difference.

1 cup unsalted butter, room temp
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsps vanilla extract
3 large eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsps baking soda
3 cups chocolate chips/chunks

Less eggs? Less baking soda? Less flour? Please help! :)
