Help with fluffy cookies?

Mina Murray | Sep 10, 2009 01:26 PM

I've been on a cookie-baking mission ever since my flatmates donated enough ingredients to me to start up a small bakery. However, the tollhouse cookie recipe that I'm using has resulted in some very, very 'fluffy' cookies that taste more like cake than cookie...What could I be doing wrong?

This is the current recipe, taken from the net and adapted for a smaller batch:

Toll House Inn chocolate chip cookies (adapted and adapted some more)

1 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar and granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup (12-oz. pkg.) choc-chips

Dry ingredients added to dry, and then wet to wet after creaming butter, sugar and essence; then egg. Extra water added to make dough. 10-15 mins in oven after dough is left c. 12 hrs to 'rest' in fridge. Cooked at 190.
