Hello!!! Thank you for this step by step recipe! Though I think I'm doing something wrong.. mine came out very fluffy. What am I doing wrong ??

Not a problem, I'm glad that you tried it. That sometimes happens to me too. What I would suggest is try adding a little less flour (possibly a 1/4 cup less). Also, maybe when you put the dough on the sheet, don't have it piled up to high. Possibly try flattening it out a little bit. Let me know if this helps. :)
