Cowering in fear.Some people just got shot at the school I went to as a kid a few minutes ago,There are helicoptors and gunfire,but hey,I've got the internet.

I'm just hoping this doesn't become a "They're in the house" type thing.

 Because then,they would have to leave.

Thin & Crispy. Which we all agree are bad. Unless there's no cookies, in which case they're good.

I like chocolate. I like cookies. Just, generally speaking, I like cookies that are unadulterated. I usually save out some dough before putting in the chips so I can just have a nice cookie. so I can enjoy the heaven that is pure cookie dough.

We've had success with both thin, crispy ccs and thick, chewy ccs. Cook's Illustrated recipes. Pretty fool-proof. I'm on the run at the moment but can get back to you all with the recipes later today. IIRC, the difference is with what kinds of sugar (white, brown, corn syrup), and the shortening, and not so much the flour. Let me know if you're interested.

I'll try it but I have doubts. I read something (Alton?) that said to bake in a hotter oven to make the cookies rise faster before they had a chance to spread. This is wrong, I think. Especially with butter, which gets soft really fast, you want to cook at a lower temperature, preferably starting with chilled dough. That encourages the cookie to set before the fat is completely liquified.

This page talks about eggs' effects. I might try just egg whites next. I'm working on chocolate chip cookies too, and writing down the recipe I use... using a scale to measure ingredients rather than rely on measuring cups. My recent batch has stayed thick and are soft, not crumbly, but get rock hard overnight unless you keep them in a ziplock bag. They're more biscotti-hard, which I don't mind because coffee solves a lot of problems but Charlie had some complaints. I stole the "form ball, then tear apart" method from some website and I think it works to help re-introduce some air that you just squeezed out by rolling it in a ball. Not sure. If the dough's soft, it doesn't help anything. The page I read that said to go cooler in the oven said 325... I went to 310 and they browned off nicely on the bottom, not much on the top. They stayed thick but this could be more a case of the cookies just drying out, rather than baking, so I might try 325 next time. I'm trying to only change one thing at a time so it's a slow process. I don't even really like chocolate chip cookies but like to make them for The Others... and the harder I tried to get them to not run, the flatter and crappier they were, so I rebooted.

 
Different approaches to the same problem. The flour and overnight rest approaches are from Shirley Corriher, her book Cookwise is my kitchen bible. She's is taking a "more gluten" approach to the problem. I like this because I think it helps with the longevity (I didn't want biscotti) problems you mentioned and keeps the children out of the coffee. I think the 'set before melt' approach is also valid but winds up with a cosmetic fix to a structural problem. 

YMMV, and I don't understand the bolded statement in your last sentence, I read the words, but they seem like gibberish.

http://altonbrown.com/the-chewy-chocolate-chip-cookie-recipe/

This is essentially a hack of the most famous cookie recipe in the world, which we all know from the back of the Nestle “morsel” bag. Extra chewiness is attained by substituting bread flour for regular all purpose, replacing one egg white with milk, and changing the ratio of brown to white sugar. 

I also recommend using premium chocolate chips, or even better - get a chuck of premium chocolate and chop it up yourself.  I have also used cake flour with much success.

What kind of sugar do you use? White will give different results from brown. There are a few other variables in terms of the flour and shortening but I'm not really a baker so I can't remember them but I saw a nice picture table one time that showed the differences. One of the best things you can probably do baking is to weigh out the ingredients rather than using cups.
