flat cookies

I made V-Con's "Peanut-Ginger-Sesame Cookies" this morning:
example
The plan is to take these camping this weekend. They have great flavor, but are thin and flat -- disappointing to someone who likes thick, chewy, puffy cookies. Oh well. I also think they are a little bit too sweet, especially with the candied ginger in there . . . I'd cut the sugar down next time. Plus, I needed WAY more sesame seeds than the recipe called for! I ended up using a mixture of flax and sesame towards the end.

All in all, a somewhat successful baking project. They'll still get eaten, I'm sure!

I know what you mean - cookies should ONLY be chewy, thick, and puffy, in my opinion. Ah well!!

Give me thick chewy cookies or give me death! ;)

Sorry that you are disappointed in your cookies...they LOOK really great even if they are too sweet. I hear you though - I really dig oatmeal cookies that are a little crispy.

Chewy cookies are my favorite too...but at least those *look* really good!

Yum - I've been eyeing that recipe! I'll use your suggestions on the changes when I get around to making it.

I made the maple cookies from VWAV and they turned out really flat too. Very tasty, but they were thin & flat.
