ok long story short, I misread a cookie dough recipe and added two tablespoons of baking powder instead of two teaspoons, anyone know a fix for the cookies? They come out fluffed up and I want soft and chewy

Welcome to the forum :)

Sorry to hear about the mistake, unfortunately there's not a lot you can do apart from to add other ingredients so that 2 tbsp becomes proportional to the other ingredients. Two tbsp is three times as much as two tsp, so you would need to add twice the ingredients again (apart from baking powder!) to create the right total. In my opinion it's probably worth just ditching the dough and starting again if you don't want puffed up cookies that taste of raising agent.
