I have been making this very same recipe since Home Ec. class in the 60's in Blue River, Ore. (Hi, girls) We made them into the shape of crescents for Mother's Tea by the ton in our cooking class. At the Tea, we modeled the clothes we had made in our sewing class. I still cook and sew, thanks to that class and the crescents turned into balls long ago. Have made them nearly every year for over 50yrs.
I found if the butter is too soft, the cookies will flatten out, so after forming them, I put them in the fridge for 20 min. or so while I fill another cookie sheet. I usually make a triple batch a couple of times so there's usually a cookie sheet in the fridge, one in the oven and one being made. I make these with my grand daughters and have had a lot of fun. Don't give up if things don't work the first time, read the comments and learn from them.
