Why are my chocolate chip cookies coming out flat?

When I make Toll House Cookies from the recipe that's on the back of Nestle's Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bits, my cookies spread out very flat. I'm using 100% butter. What can I do to have plumper cookies?

Try using ½ cup shortening and ½ cup butter. Good luck!

Add more flour and melt your butter before mixing. I add at least an extra cup of flour. It is hard to mix but the cookies come out thick and chewy!
