Cookies Gone Wrong... Again

Can anyone pls tell me what did I do wrong here and what can I do to fix it?
The cookie was supposed to be soft and chewy but it became soft and crumbly instead. Has a wierd aftertaste and the inside looks like dark yellow.

Too much baking soda? Too much egg yolk?
Hmmm 馃
Try making easy cake mix cookies.

"Let鈥檚 talk about these 3 simple ingredients! Here鈥檚 what you need to know (the exact quantities for each one can be found in the recipe card below):

Cake Mix. I like vanilla cake mix best in these cookies, so that鈥檚 what I usually go with!
Eggs. Use large eggs for this recipe.
Oil. I use vegetable oil, however, any light colored oil will work, such as canola oil or corn oil."

"Mix the ingredients together. In a large bowl, stir together the cake mix, eggs, and oil until smooth. You can also complete this step in the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment, mixing the ingredients on low until combined.
Pour in the add-ins. Mix in your desired add-ins until they are evenly incorporated.
Bake the cookies. Using a cookie scoop, portion the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet, spacing the cookies 2 inches apart. Bake them for 9-10 minutes, or until they are lightly golden at the edges. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack."

I used to make something similar in a professional kitchen. They are fool proof. You can use any flavor cake mix, and you can add anything you want...such as chocolate chips, nuts, and so on.

Bake the cookies directly on the baking tray without the paper cups Ensure oven is preheated to the right temperature.
Cooking is an art鈥aking is a science. Follow recipes.

Who cares what they look like! Get em im ya
Chuck the baking soda in the bin...
I'm not a baking expert, but if I were one I'd probably need to know the recipe and bake time & temp to be able to diagnose anything.
@ElwoodBlues Here's what I used:

120g all purpose flour
90g Salted Butter and some other Butter (Different brands 馃槶)
100g white sugar
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
Some pink sugar sprinkles
(just sugar with food color)

Then baked it for 14 minutes at
180 掳C
@Venterdotkom Again, I'm not a baking expert, but google tells me
Basic cookie dough follows a 3:2:1 ratio, 3 parts flour, 2 parts fat and 1 part sugar.

You can probably vary that a fair amount, but it sounds like your cookie need more flour, less sugar.

Makes me curious where your recipe originated.
@ElwoodBlues That actually makes sense... The original recipe is actually 140g flour and 100g butter. I only had 90g butter available so I used less flour, but maybe I should add a bit more to get that doughy texture. Thank you!

Looks like the dough is still a little too wet going in. The cakey texture is coming from the evaporating moisture forming bubbles as it cooks. Also, make sure they cool almost completely before trying to move them.
