I have trouble with flat cookies ( I blame the high altitude in Colorado), but I successfully achieved a thick cookie with this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 300.
  2. In a sifter combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Sift onto wax paper. Set aside.
  3. Beat butter and brown sugar 4 minutes on medium speed until soft. Scrape bowl.
  4. Add eggs, rum, and vanilla. Beat 1 minute on medium speed. Scrape bowl.
  5. On low speed, gradually add flour mixture (should take about a minute).
  6. Add chocolate chips and mix 30 seconds on low. Use a spatula to finish mixing dough if needed.
  7. Spoon 2 heaping tablespoons of dough per cookie onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  8. Bake 28-30 minutes, rotating cookie sheet once during baking. I bake my cookies about 25-26 minutes so they are a bit more soft/chewy.

Really good cookies! I also do not like when cookies spread and end up flat and crispy. On the other hand I have found others that are thick cookies, but turn out cakey tasting. These are perfect. Thick and chewy and LOADED with chocolate chips! Everyone is eating them up, I will have to hide some for later!! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
