"Hi asdf33,

The recipe is correct as written. As ak4ever points out, these are a wonderful crisp cookie.
Thanks for stopping by.

"Should the recipe be using "baking powder" rather than baking soda?

I don't see any acidic ingredients to work with baking soda."

"I LOVE crispy cookies...these are so good. Reminded me of the 'chips ahoy' cookies. If you enjoy cookies that are crisp and melt in your mouth...make these NOW"
