I was only mad 'cause I had to clean up that mess! I always make the worst mess when I bake!!!!!!!!!! The cookies.....just par for the course! We still ate what fell through
I guess you're supposed to leave them on the pan for a bit?
errmm? Maybe leave them in the oven to cook a little longer? You don't have to leave them on the pan to cool, but if they are falling through your rack then look to make your dough a little less doughy (add flour?) and check you're cooking them at the right temp for the right amount of time.
I've always used the standard tollhouse recipe for my chocolate chip cookies. Well, ok, just a little different, I reduce the sugars from 3/4 to 2/3. Since I can't yet post a URL, just Google Toll House Cookie and you'll get dozen's of links to the Nestle recipe.
I ship large quantities on a regular basis to military folk overseas and the cookies do quite well what with the extreme cold of the flight and the extreme heat on the other end. I've got that recipe memorized!
