I had high hopes for this recipe based on the number of reviews it had. However, a lot of people gave it more stars based on CHANGES they had made to it. The actual original recipe does not deserve 5 stars. I followed the recipe and my cookies came out flat, spread too much. Stuck to the parchment paper and had to gently peel them off after they cooled. They had great taste but you could not even hold them in your hands to eat them. They fell apart all over the place. After the 1st batch I put the dough in the refrigerator to see if that would help the spreading. Nope. Then the next batch I put in the freezer (cookie sheet and all). Didn't help. I added baking powder and a touch more flour to thicken it a bit. Didn't help. I tried all the suggestions the other reviewers had and they still spread and came out flat. Onto another recipe.
