    I went on line and entered "does BS or BP make softer cookies?" The answer was rather lengthy and I would have copied it and sent it to you if I knew how to do this. You can put in the same thing I did and read it for yourself. It did say that wether a cookie rises or not depends on the leaving agent, type of fats and sugar Also, things that are added like chocolate chips, etc. Wish I could have been more help. Good Luck.

    ​Baking soda helps cookies brown. Baking soda makes cookies puff so I would think baking powder?

    More butter can help to make the cookies softer.
    ........ plus of course, improve the flavour!

    The Anzac Biscuit recipe calls for Corn Syrup. They are a oatmeal coconut cookie that is nice and chewy.

    Baking Soda is the leavening agent in them

    Shortning makes a softer moister cookie while butter makes it dryer and more crisp. I like the butter flavor better though.

    Baking soda may leave a bad after taste if the other ingredients don't balance it out. If you ever accidentally use the wrong one, you will know. Cream of tartar is the extra leavening in snickerdoodles and is an ingredient in baking powder.

    Baking powder makes the cookies rise. If you use something acidic in your cookies, baking soda takes out the bite.

    if you put a slice of bread in the container with your cookies after there baked it keeps them softer, the bread slice will get hard as a rock , it sounds silly but it works , I've been doing it for yrs. happy baking ,
