fishheadsoup, have a browse through:-

You'll find a number of chocolate chip cookie recipes there (e. g. Triple chocolate chunk cookies, Melt & Mix Choc Chippies) - hopefully there's a recipe or two there that you haven't already tried. :-))

the ones that spread out usually have melted butter in them. when you cream the butter and sugar it shouldn't get much softer than margarine. try that - it should work.

My fav recipe is Sante Biscuits in the Edmonds book, they are so yum. It is a challenge to get the dough onto the baking trays to bake, before little thieves start eating the mixture!

i use this one from allison and simon holst's lunch box recipe book - its brill!

i just double the amounts when i make it: 75g butter creamed well with 1/2 brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar and 1 egg. then add 1/2 cup choc chips, 1 cup flour and 1/2 tsp baking soda - add more flour if a bit tacky. you can either roll the mix into a sausage and then slice into rings the thickness that you like or roll into balls and fork down - if you do large balls they come out like the big cookie time cookies! ! really nice - the longer you leave them in the oven to brown the crunchier they are - enjoy! ! !

Try splitting a vanilla bean and adding the vanilla bea seeds to the bakingmix - even more fabulous. Vanilla beans are really cheap and superb quality on Trademe - unlike supermarkets and gourmet food stores

What me self promote? Try searching these threads for people likecookessentials- you'll get pages of threads where they've posted in just the last month. If it's useful, I suppose it's fine.
I presume the end game is to get people to click through to their squillions of listings.
