If your cookies are spreading too thin, you can put them back into the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes after step 4.
Some people have reported reducing the oil to 1/3 Cup. I have since tested the recipe 2 more times (once with 1/2 Cup oil, once with 1/3 Cup oil). Results were preferable using 1/2 Cup, but still fine with 1/3 Cup if that's what you would like to do.
