Chocolate Chip Cookies!

How do you make good chocolate chip cookies? For the first time ever I decided to bake these. I am dieting and so it wasnt for me but to bring to the homeless shelter as a little snack on Sunday. So I went to the grocery store and spent several hours making bear 7 dozen chocolate chip cookies. It was a great and inexpensive snack, I think I had some ingredients at home and what I didnt have cost $10. I followed a recipe that included a ton of butter, white and brown sugar and other bad for you ingredients. I TOOK them out of the oven after about 9 or 10 minutes and let them harden. But they hardened a little too much. Do you make any special modifications when you make chocolate chip cookies? How do you make them soft? And any modification to make them healthier?

gosh 7 dozen is a lot! we baked when we were younger, but never that much. and to be given away? you're so kind and generous. i do remember a tip (which i followed) that after a few days, when cookies start to harden, put them in a sealed container with a piece of bread. the cookies will absorb the moisture of the bread, while the bread will harden. i just don't know if it will work for fresh-baked cookies. maybe taking out too much butter and sugar was the reason it came out hard?

That is so nice you baked them for the homeless people. I have not baked in ages. I have an old stove that was given to me many years ago here and I have not gotten a new one so I do not bake anymore because the oven part is not good to use. I buy chocolate chip cookies from the store or a bakery. I know the store ones are not the same but they are tasty.
