You're (not) a tough cookie with a long history....

I have a cookie I would like to eat in my head. So I devised a recipe and made a batch. I didn't get what I wanted. Help me modify this recipe to get what I'm looking for.

I wanted a cookie that is flatter, chewier, yet crispier, and (dare I say it?) greasier than what came out. This is the recipe I devised, how do I change it to get what I want?
1 cup of melted butter
1 cup almond butter (six bucks a cup. Yikes!)
2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs (one too many? yolks only, perhaps?)
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder (omit entirely?)
1 tsp vanilla extract (almond extract instead?)
3 cups walnut halves (believe it or not, I'm considering increasing this)
They came out kind of "cakey." How do I get that mouth-feel I'm after? Additionally, I'm open to suggestions as far as modifying the flavor. I'm looking for "robust" dark tastes. Any seasonings you might add? I've considered substituting some of the sugar with molasses, even. Is there an appropriate seasoning to give it some "bite?"
