I definitely added the called for amount of baking soda and it was a brand new box. I made them all at the same time as well, popping a batch in every ten to twelve minutes or so. I'm going to try again in a few days freezing them before cooking and in between batches.

I really don't like super flat cookies. :/

You tried to bake. That's what happened

Really though, yah, I'd say not cold enough.

I am an excellent cook/baker I'll have you know. Most of the time anyway. I just don't know what happened with these silly cookies.

It also makes a difference between real butter and margarine.

What's wrong with flat cookies? They all get squashed down in the end.

I bet they still taste good.

As my husband would say Flat cookies are the best because then you can add Ice cream and make ice cream, cookie sandwiches. Me I prefer soft, gooey, fluffy cookies.

Most likely the butter and sugar were not creamed enough. That's what brings the air into the batter/dough. The temperature could affect it, but not as much as the creaming. You can also use white sugar to get lighter cookies because brown sugar retains more moisture and makes them more heavy and chewy.
