Help with fluffy cookies?

Thank you all very much for your help - I'll try your recommendations and see what happens...the only thing is, I'm now addicted to cookies!

Help with fluffy cookies?

I wasn't sure that I needed to originally, but when I combined the dry ingredients and the wet, the discrepancy was obvious both times I made the recipe - it was very dry and did not form into dough at all.

Thanks - is there anything that you'd recommend to use instead of water? I didn't know if using milk instead to bind the mixture would affect the composition of the cookies. And...I think I will adjust the baking powder too :D

Help with fluffy cookies?

I've been on a cookie-baking mission ever since my flatmates donated enough ingredients to me to start up a small bakery. However, the tollhouse cookie recipe that I'm using has resulted in some very, very 'fluffy' cookies that taste more like cake than cookie...What could I be doing wrong?

This is the current recipe, taken from the net and adapted for a smaller batch:

Toll House Inn chocolate chip cookies (adapted and adapted some more)

1 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar and granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup (12-oz. pkg.) choc-chips

Dry ingredients added to dry, and then wet to wet after creaming butter, sugar and essence; then egg. Extra water added to make dough. 10-15 mins in oven after dough is left c. 12 hrs to 'rest' in fridge. Cooked at 190.
