I have a good suggestion. 

When I was a young man I used to bring Nestles Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies to work on special occasions.  The old ladies used to say they really liked my cookies but could not duplicate them.  I kept saying that truthfully, I just used the recipe on the back of Nestles Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips. 

I thought the old ladies were just just trying to say something nice to me, but one wise old bird had a long talk with me and asked me to explain everythin I did, step by step. 

As I explained everything to her, we discovered I had been mistakenly using only 2 cups of flour when the recipe calls for 2 1/4 cups of flour!  The nice old bird smiled triumphantly and if she is still alive today she must be in her 80’s. 

This slight difference made the cookies a little more like candy than cookies.
