Re: Chocolate CHip cookies

Butter has a lower melting point than shortening which is what the pp is referencing with "spreading". The butter ments causing more spreading thereby a flatter cookie. You can use butter flavored Crisco to get the taste and puffiness you are looking for. Alton Brown has a recipe for a "puffy" cookie that is readily available online.

edit: This will help you understand how to adjust a recipe to get different texture.
