My husband is away for work and surprised me this afternoon with plane tix to Paris (the drive would be too long for the baby) so that we can be together for Valentines Day. We'll also be accompanying him for the rest of his business trips since he is in Paris with his car...that way we can all travel home together. Anyway!!! That's not the point! DHs favorite cookies are Chocolate Chip, so I made some for him today. ...and they didn't come out right, again! They always come out like this and I have no idea what I'm doing wrong... My chocolate chip cookies always end up really flat...Not like the pretty ones you see in the cookbooks, that are nice, fluffy, etc. Mine sometimes look like pancakes! I follow the directions of the recipe (so far, I have used the Neiman Marcus Cookie Recipe and the Hershey's recipe). My butter is softened, I measure the ingredients exactly...I have no clue what I'm doing wrong! How can I make the perfect chocolate chip cookie????
