I make half a recipe all the time. You used the right amount of butter, 2 sticks equals one cup. I had to go check just to make sure, LOL!! My cookies are spotted too. I just assumed they were supposed to be like that. They taste great. I don't have a clue what could cause it. I have made them with regular butter and no salt butter, sometimes I have room temp butter and sometimes I use it cold and they always have spots. Maybe I will try to beat mine less next time. I have notice that sometimes I get really big bubbles in mine so I could be overbeating them. I'll just blame my KA, it does all my mixing.

Not that this helps you much but thought you'll like to know you aren't the only one with this going on.

ROTF so does this mean I can keep all the cookies I just baked for my kids's Dr Seuss class parties tomorrow?? I certainly don't want to contaimate their classes. NA NA, I've already had the chicken pox, LOL!!!

Just wanted to let you know that I also have a new oven and it bakes higher than the selected temp. I bought an oven thermometer at a restaurant supply store (in their sale bin for like a dollar!). I think you can get them pretty much anywhere though. Now I know what the temp really is. I bake at 325 degrees.
