Tips:
The temperature of the butter is extremely important to the cookie texture.  Butter that is at cool room temperature will allow the cookie to hold its shape, and flatten while baking without overspreading.

Avoid using butter that has been softened in the microwave or completely melted on the stovetop.  Otherwise, the cookies will become overly greasy and doughy when it is finished baking.
