It seems like no matter how much I try different chocolate cookie recipes in hope that I find a perfect one I cannot seem too. The cookies always taste fine, but after an hour or so I try one and they are hardened but thick. Does anyone have any tips or tricks they know that will give me that store bought chocolate chip cookie taste?
This is the hour long episode Alton devoted to the chemistry of cookie making where he demonstrates the chocolate chip cookie recipe variations.

You might not be putting enough brown sugar in them, ad also try using criso instead of butter. They celll criso in blocks/sticks, that might make a difference. My friend uses crisco and her cookies always come out perfect! Also check the brown sugar thing, I think it is what makes the cookies soft. Don't seal them up right away either let them sit out for a while.

Grandma used to put a piece of bread in the jar if she wanted to soften cookies.
Try it- the bread becomes hard and the cookies soft!
