Why are my cookies thick

Not baking right
Asked Feb 17, 2012
It's hard to say without seeing the recipe, but it could be a couple of things.

It could be that there is too much dry ingredients (like flour) and not enough fat (like butter or oil). Try either less flour or more butter/oil or both and see what happens.

If they cookie dough gets rolled into a ball then baked, it could be that you're rolling the balls too big. Try smaller balls, or flattening them a bit. If they cook from slices, then maybe you're cutting the dough too thick. Try thinner slices.

It could also be the oven temperature needs to be adjusted or maybe they need to cook longer.

Some other troubleshooting help is on this page:

I think you are cooking food too much longer or the temperature is too high then the normal cooking temperature or try to use some oil and water to make a good.
