I don't have any problems with this recipe. I make sure the egg is truly large, the butter is soft, and make exact measurements. I do it all in a Bowl and beat by hand (a good hand exercise). If you want it to rise more than put a slight more baking powder into the mix. Roll into balls, roll on the sugar and put in a container into the refrigerator to chill for at least till butter part of recipe hardens.

My cookies ended up spreading while in oven. They were still delicious. Texture was perfect and not to crispy. I dipped some in cinammon sugar mixture. Wonder what I need to do for them to keep the ball shape. Going to try again on a different cookie sheet. Used stone one thus time.
