Yes, it's usually baking soda, sometimes baking powder.  Or use plain flour instead of self-raising if that's what you've been using.

Maybe you could leave the recipe the same and peridically thru the baking and when you pull it out of the oven pat it down, I've done that before for sweet crusts.

That reminds me, one tip I heard is to cover the bottom with dried beans, which provide enough weight to stop it from puffing up.

I've done the bean trick before when blind baking regular pie crusts. I think you want to have parchment paper or something between the beans and your crust though (I am imagining a beany cookie-y mess otherwise). It is a great thing because you can just keep those beans in a jar in the cabinet for many future uses.

And the pie does sound great!

That sounds really cool, and easy too!  For someone who doesn't even really like pie, I'd be willing to give this one a shot.  The idea of using peanut butter and chocolate pudding sounds like some sort of big inverted Reese's cup.  That might be neat, too, although much too rich for me.

home ec. teacher expertise: leavening agents in cookies are baking powder or baking soda and steam- but the steam works with eggs, so try no baking powder or baking soda and no eggs- but substitute some extra liqid for the eggs.  An egg is about 1/4 cup Smiley

Hehe, so you may as well make pastry, and add chocolate chips and sugar!

yeah, the main difference would be that for cookies you cream together the butter and sugar while for pastry you "cut in" the butter to the flour- this makes it flakey rather than crispy, chewy or mealy...
