My CI thick and chewy choc chip cookies are delicious but not thick or chewy

Apologies in advance for a question that could probably be easily answered with a better Home Cooking search (Chowhound, I love you, but how 'bout a better search engine?)...

The taste of my CI thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies is out of this world delicious but they really are particularly thick at all and I wouldn't exactly call them chewy. I would say they are not crispy and not THIN but more soft and medium thickness. What am I doing wrong?

I consider myself a stickler for following a recipe in terms of measurements so I don't think that is it. I even do the "make a ball, split apart, rejoin with ragged edges up", etc. This time I took them out earlier than my gut told me to (my gut has a tendency to overcook at times) and that worked fine (last time they ended up too crunchy).

What else contributes to thick and chewy?

TIA, Sara
