Measure the flour correctly. Be sure to use a measuring cup made for dry ingredients (NOT a pyrex liquid measuring cup). Then, measure flour by scooping it into a measuring cup and leveling it with a knife or use a kitchen scale
Butter. Be sure to use a slightly cold butter. To test: you should barely be able to make a dent with your fingers

Over-mixing. If you over-mix the ingredients in this best chocolate chip cookie recipe you may end up with flat cookies.
Ingredients are too warm. Sometimes over-mixing can also lead to your ingredients becoming too warm. If you notice this happening, you can chill the dough before baking to return the batter to room temperature.

They will look a little doughy when you remove them from the oven. They may be lightly browned in a few places, which is exactly how you want them. They will set up as they sit on the cookie sheet for a few minutes. I never bake them for more than 9 minutes
Cool the chocolate chip cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely (or just eat them warm while the chocolate chips are melty)!
Store these chocolate chip cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 2 months
