I know they're overbooked...I was dealing with my 21 month old and didn't get to them...my biggest concern is the fact that they're all flat

U have to preheat your oven completely before putting them in. And something I like to do is freeze the dough rolled up in waxed paper or Saran wrap and Just cut what y need and bake frozen.

Too much oil or butter could make the batter runny like that. Idk if you used either though.

Too much butter, and it helps to refrigerate your dough for a bit before putting them in the oven.

OP - Can you post the recipe that you were using? IMO the cookies look over baked and the batter looks like it was a bit runny.

I usually make batter overnight, stick it in the fridge til the next day. I ONLY work with super firm dough. Just make sure and wrap it super tight. I also like to stick the dough in a Ziploc to make sure it doesn't dry out.
