Melt-In-Your-Mouth Brown Sugar Cookies
YIELD: About 3 dozen cookies
- 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
- 1 1/4 cups brown sugar (you can use light or dark or a combination of both)
- 1 large egg
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Mix together butter and brown sugar using a stand mixer, hand mixer or (if you're strong) by hand, until light and fluffy.
Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until they are well combined. (I like to add the flour first, then put everything else in on top, for some reason everything just mixes up better.)
Roll into balls using about a teaspoonful of dough and place on an ungreased cookie sheet ( or line sheet with parchment paper, it will make your life much easier!) about 2 inches apart and bake for 8 minutes. Let cool on sheet for about two minutes for chewy cookies. If you want hard cookies, bake for 9 minutes and let cool completely on the cookie sheet.
