Yummy but flat!

I substituted 1 stick of butter, & 3 sticks of unsweetened butter (to equal 2 cups) for the vegatable shortening and my cookies were extremely tasty! However they were flat.... :( They were a big hit with the kids, none-the-less!

    flat cookies

    Christina P from

    Monique, butter has more water than shortening, so cookies made with butter tend to spread more. Refrigerating the dough before baking might help.

    Abuelite Chocolate Best Left As A Chololate Drink.

    Tammy from Ludington, MI

    I didn't care for these cookies, even after grating the chocolate The texture was like eating sand. The chocolate didn't dissolve in the batter, also the outer surface of the cookie was still creamy after backing 19-minutes, evidently this is the way the cookie should be. I was afraid of over baking and burning them to continue baking any longer. I had no problem of them spreading out and becoming flat, perhaps it was because I did not sift the flour before measuring it. The instructions are a bit vague on this point. My cookies had to be flatten a bit with a fork, otherwise they would have remained exactly as I placed them on the cookie sheet lightly flatted by hand. They did raise just a tad during baking without the addition of baking powder (as recommended be another reviewer). The flavor was GOOD, however I would prefer my Abuelita Chocolate in a mug of nice hot milk.

    Flat cookies

    The reason why your cookies came out flat is because you need to add 2 tsp of Baking powder this will help your cookies to rise.
