Caramel Nut Acorn Cookies Are Too Greasy

I have tried making these cookies three times following the recipe below and each time the finished cookies are too greasy. When I shape the cookies into a ball I have melted butter oozing out in the process. Anyone else experience this issue ? On my last effort I tried cutting back on the amount of butter by 3 tablespoons but am not sure how much can be cut without affecting taste and texture.
I have also tried creaming the butter and sugar which seemed to help with the greasiness but family have said the cookie texture was not the same, which I expected. My mom used this recipe and I don't remember the greasy texture of the cookie.

Recipe for cookie omitting caramel/nut dip:

21/2 C flour
1/2 tsp baking pwdr.

Melt 1 C butter
Stir in:
3/4 C brown sugar
1 TSP vanilla
1/3 C finely chopped nuts

Add dry ingredients ; mix well

Shape into balls , flatten one side and pinch top into a peak.
Bake at 350 for 15-18 min.

Any suggestions or is this to be expected with the melted butter method used?
Thanks
Meesch
