That cookie listed delicious
Oh-oh! My waistline is going to HATE you for this delectable cookie recipe. Some days (weeks) I just have zero willpower 😕
Mine did not come out well. There seems to be too much butter. They came out all runny and more like candy than cookies. What could I have done? Maybe I mismeasured the flour, that’s all I can think of.

I'm sorry they did not turn out for you! Sounds like they spread too much. Was the dough warm? Were you able to shape it into balls? It sounds like it needed more flour. We will definitely run this recipe back through our test kitchens!
Yes, the dough was chilled and actually quite stiff when I put it out. They taste fine but, as you can see, not exactly “cookies.” We think more flour or less butter maybe.
