How to get ultra thin chocolate chip cookies without really trying

It was late last night when I decided to make a half batch of classic Nestle tollhouse chocolate chip cookies for the weekend. Since it was after 11pm, I decided to mix the dough together, let it rest and bake them off in the morning.

What the temperature of the butter too warm? I thought back to the night before and realized although I meant to half everything, I forgot to divide the sugar.
