Why Do My Chocolate Chip Cookies Turn Out Cake-like?


After making chocolate chip cookies, I can't figure out how to get the consistency I want, chewy and soft, or even chewy and crunchy. All I get is fluffy, cake-like cookies. What can I do to correct this?

You are adding too much flour and probably not enough butter/shortneing (don't know which you use). That is what I would change.

Try using smaller eggs or just one egg instead of 2.

Are you adding too much levening? Baking soda or baking powder? Also, make sure you're not beating your eggs so much that you incorporate air into them. Good luck!

I have used the recipe on the can of crisco butter flavored, and they turned out perfect. I found that by baking them an extra few minutes they turned nice and crispy. Just watch them so they don't burn. Good luck.

Next time you make them I'd try decreasing the flour a little bit.
