Flat Cookie Syndrome

I have a problem...I can NOT make a thick cookie. No matter what recipe I follow my cookies alway fall flat :( I can make cakes, pies, brownies, cupcakes, but man silly cookies! I don't know what I am doing wrong. Today I stumbled upon a recipe for what was supposed to be a puffy thick peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. And her cookie actually looked thick and puffy, so this gave me hope! Maybe if I followed her recipe exactly I would finally conquer my flat cookie syndrome!

So this afternoon I made cookies. Kirsten helped :)

Stealing a chocolate chip...

or three :)

I could eat a bowl full of this stuff (if it weren't for pesky salmonella)

Ready to go into the oven :) Finger's crossed!

And they are done!

Grrr, flat yet again!

 Even though these didn't stay puffy for me, they are still super delicious! Someone needs to fill me in on what I am doing wrong. What's the secret to a thick cookie!?


  1. I think cookie-making is an art! Mine come out different every time. These look delicious!

  2. I don't know about puffy cookies but I do know those look delicious!! Eat 2 or 3 for me! :) & cute post!!!!
