Brown Sugar Cookies

Another recipe requested by another friend.  Karen, this one's posted for you!  I made these for work on Thursday and they were well recived.  Brown Sugar Cookies are a twist on the traditional sugar cookies but you replace the granulated sugar with either light (creates a mild butterscotch flavor) or dark brown (creates a more molasses-like flavor) sugar.  They have this wonderful warm taste and seem to just melt in your mouth. 

Brown Sugar Cookies
Makes 3 dozen cookies
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter1 1/2 cups brown sugar (either light or dark)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp sugar, for rolling
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, followed by vanilla extract. Gradually blend in the flour mixture until dough comes together and no streaks of dry ingredients remain.
  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar before placing on baking sheet. Space cookies about 2-inches apart to allow for spread.
  5. Bake for 11-14 minutes, until cookies are set and very lightly browned around the edges.
  6. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 3-4 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
