Most baking powder you buy in the supermarket is double acting, meaning that it creates gas bubbles when mixed with liquid and then again when it's heated.
Because most people use double acting, most recipes assume that that's what you are using. Did the recipe specify single acting BP?
You might have a leavening problem if they are fluffy. Did you use butter or shortening? Shortening sometimes makes for a cakey cookie.
Can you post the recipe for us to look at?
