I love this recipe! It is my go-to for cookies. I have made it, as written, a bunch of times with awesome results. But for some unknown reason, I was moved to "tweak" it today, and melted the butter per some advice I saw elsewhere ("Melt the butter for chewier cookies") and, let me tell you, bad idea. Cookies were crumbly, flat, and impossible to pick up. The dough was soupy, I had to keep adding flour to it, and then the cookies came out dry, crumbly, and so delicate that I couldn't pick them up without them turning to dust in my hands. Follow the recipe as written (add more vanilla if you want, it doesn't ruin the dough) but don't melt the butter.
