So I am trying to develope a chocolate chip cookie recipe . I need to have a soft chewy cookie first and formost , I do not want any browning if the cookie . The cookies are small 7 grams . I have been using sweetex high ratio shortening in the recipe . Does the type of shortening I use effect the spreading of the cookie ? I have been having a problem with the cookies deflating when they come out of the oven . I am using both baking soda and powder in eqUal amounts . Does anybody have any suggestions on how I can solve these problems ?
