cookies behaving oddly

Okay, so I made a batch of "Batchelors Buttons" the same way I made them the last time. The only things different are that I had the oven on convection, and the flour. This batch didn't spread out nearly as much as the last one; like twice the height and half as big around didn't spread. Do I blame it on the oven or the flour? Can gluten REALLY make that much of a difference in cookies? um, butter might have been different too, but really, how much difference can that make? It's all american style butter, right?

oh yeah, recipe:

1 c butter
1 1/2 c brown sugar
2 eggs
2 c flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1 T hot water

cream butter, sugar. Add egg, vanilla. Sift dry, and add to mix. Add water, drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Cook, cool on rack, and when cool, smear with nutella, rasberry jam, whatever, and sandwich together.
