I don't think light or dark sugar would make a difference. But there are a million other things that could! Temperature of ingredients, age of ingredients, etc. Also, did you make any substitutions that changed the ratio of wet to dry? Another key factor in cookies is how much you mix them. Also, is your oven running hot or cold? For less cakey cookies, bake longer, at a lower temp. All you can really do is eat your failures and try again. I know I do!
