Butter contributes to cookie spread. You can replace some of the butter with an extra egg yolk and the cookies will stay tender and fat. Adding more flour will produce a cake like cookie that is dry.

In my experience, if I chill the dough thoroughly before forming the cookies, and don't press down hard on them before baking, they will stay thick. No extra flour needed.

Here is a food lab dissertation on chocolate chip cookies by Kenji at Serious Eats. I love his chocolate cookies. By reading his explanation of ingredients, you could tailor your cookies to your liking.

If you click on his cookie recipe link, I believe he tells someone how to achieve thicker results down in the comments.

My mom always adds a little extra flour to make her cookies thicker. And she swears butter makes a thicker, softer cookie than margarine.
