Default Soft chewy cookies

What ingredient makes cookies soft and chewy, like the special chocolate
chip cookies?

Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well
you bounce.

The higher the fat content the softer and longer lasting they become.

Well, maybe, but not in my experience. My cookies made with butter as
the shortening are always crispier and harder than my cookies made with
oleo. Vegetable shortening would probably work the same as oleo, but I
never use it.

I prefer the butter ones myself, but my family likes them softer.

My experience is the opposite. I make soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies
with butter.

Since fat shortens (as in shortbread/crumbly), I would suspect egg is the
ingredient you are missing.

putting them in the cookie jar with a small apple -

however, infusing them with lecithin or a like softener under a thousand
pounds of pressure at the factory also works
