My cookies are either coming out perfectly in shape, but taste almost like short bread . . . Or delicious, but spread into unrecognizable blobs . . .
The recipe I used was a no fail/no spread recipe that called for 3 cups of flour, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 tbsp baking powder, pinch of salt, 1 cup butter, 1 tbsp vanilla, and 1 egg. I had to add a little vegetable oil (less than 1/4 cup) because the dough was so crumbly it wouldn't roll out. I chilled the dough for the allotted time, used cool cookie sheets, and they look great. They taste very bready though.
How can I fix this?? Please help!
I attached pictures for reference.
