    I think the karo syrup ratio made them spread like a tuile or lace cookie. To make a puffy cookie (from Alton Brown) the batter should be chilled and the ratio of brown sugar to white sugar should be higher...also reduce the egg yolk (fatty part of the egg) and increase the white. Using cake flour will soak up less moisture and the leftover moisture will become steam and the cookie will puff instead of spread.
