Lefselover, I think (and I could be totally out to lunch here) that if you use shortening instead of butter you get a chewier cookie. Butter tends to make your cookies spread out more and shortening retains the shape. Something to do with lower heat tolerance? Can't recall. ANYWAY...try subbing out about 1/2 of the butter with shortening in your favourite recipes and see if that works for you.
