Brown Sugar Cookies

These Brown Sugar Cookies are so soft and tender that they practically melt in your mouth! They're super simple to make and taste so delicious. They get their amazing flavor and tender texture from the brown sugar but aren't overly sweet.

I'm not kidding when I say these Brown Sugar Cookies are easy to make. The cookie dough takes basic ingredients and comes together so quickly. It will need 30 minutes to chill once made, but then they bake in a mere 13 minutes!

A FEW NOTES BEFORE WE GET STARTED

Preheat oven to 350º. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, blend together the butter and sugars on medium speed until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. With the mixer on low, add in the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix just until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Place the bowl of dough in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes.

Using a 2 tablespoon scoop, form cookies into balls. Place each cookie on a parchment lined cookie sheet a few inches apart.

Bake the cookies for about 13-15 minutes. You can use a round cookie cutter or cup to "cookie scoot" or round them out at about the 10 minute mark.

Let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes on the baking sheet before carefully moving them to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Leftover cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to one week but are best when enjoyed within the first few days. You can reheat them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
  • Cookie dough can be made ahead, scooped, rolled in sugar and placed in a ziploc bag to be frozen for up to two months. Once you’re ready to bake, let the dough sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes and bake. You’ll need to add on an extra 5 minutes or so to the original baking time.
