Brown Sugar Butter Cookies


Brown Sugar Butter Cookies


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (10 ounces)

3/4 cup light brown sugar (5 ounces)

1 large egg

1 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup white granulated sugar for rolling (optional)


  1. Cream together the butter and brown sugar in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. 
  2. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again. Add in the egg and vanilla extract, mix until well combined. 
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir just until combined. 
  4. Scoop out dough – approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons- and roll into balls. Roll the balls in the granulated sugar. (You can skip the rolling in sugar if you'd like.)
  5. Place onto a parchment paper or silicone baking mat lined cookie sheet. Press down with the tines of a fork. 
  6. Refrigerate dough balls for 30-60 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the centers are set. We do not let the cookies get brown so that they stay soft.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking pan for 3-4 minutes, then remove to a baking rack to finish cooling.
  10. Store in an airtight container.
