I follow the back of the toll house chocolate chip package but I take out 1/2 cup of sugar and add 1 (4 serving) package of vanilla pudding and mine look like the one in the top right picture.

use an electric mixer for most of it.  i use butter also, not shortening.  you might try adding a lttlle more flour as well

 I always add more flour than the recipe calls for.  Probably about 1/3-1/2 c more.  I just add and check until the batter isn't so sticky/tacky.

Butter unsalted. Follow the hershey recipe, except add a 1\2 cup applesauce, and process the brown sugar. It will be a light fluffy batter. Cover with saran wrap, fridge for an hour and then bake. Absolutely delish.

 Butter has more water than margarine and therefore your cookies will tend to spread more with butter.  BUT, I always use butter too (tastes way better) and then add more flour to counter the water.

or a little less. just aboutu every time i've made those from scratch, they look like the bottem ones, but they break apart. you might also try sour cream. my grandpa uses that to make pancakes and wafles fluffy.
