    Method

    Cream butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.

    Beat in egg and vanilla essence.

    Sift the flour over the butter mixture and fold with the chocolate chips.

    Drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture on the greased baking sheets it should fall of the spoon easily with the sharp jerk if not use another spoon to scoop it off.

    Leave plenty of space between the cookies to allow for spreading.

    Flatten each cookie slightly with the back of a fork keeping the shape as even as possible.

    Bake at @ 180C for about ten minutes or until golden.

    Where is the leavening agent? That might be your problem.
