Brown Sugar Cookie Recipe

Brown sugar cookie recipe that is super soft, a tad chewy, simple to make, and one of my favorite sweet treats ever.

I love brown sugar dessert recipes, and I’m very excited about these cookies.


This brown sugar cookie recipe produces DELICIOUS cookies that will disappear very quickly……if you’re not careful.

You could store them under lock and key, as my Mom used to do with her world famous Christmas sugar cookies.  A little extreme, but it does work.

The texture mix of super soft in the middle, crinkles on top, sugar sprinkled about, and chewy when you bite into it, is cookie perfection.

These cookies are perfect anytime of the day.  After my breakfast this morning, I needed a little sugar boost, and enjoyed a cookie with my hot zen green tea.  I felt like I was at a fancy high tea, with my delectable brown sugar cookies.

The taste is so simple that you can have a few, and not feel weighted down. They’re light as air, yet flavorful and satisfying at the same time.

They remind me of the chocolate sugar cookies I shared last year.

If you’ve been following along, you know how much I LOVE cookie dough.  Oh my goodness, brown sugar cookie dough……straight to the top of the charts for best tasting dough.

 

Tips for this brown sugar cookie recipe:

  1. You could turn these cookies into brown sugar cinnamon cookies, by mixing in 2 teaspoons of cinnamon with the sugar to roll the dough in.
  2. After the 8 minute marker, the recipe calls for you to gently press the top down with a fork – pay attention to gently.  If you press too hard, you’ll lose the wonderful puffiness to these cookies.

Hope you enjoy these delicious morsels as much as we did!

Brown Sugar Cookie Recipe

Brown sugar cookie recipe that is super soft, a tad chewy, simple to make, and one of my favorite sweet treats ever.

Course cookies
Prep Time 15 minutes
Servings 30
Calories 77 kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt.

  2. Place butter in bowl and microwave until melted (it took about 45 seconds in my microwave).  Once butter is melted, let butter sit in bowl for about 10 minutes to cool a little, before mixing with brown sugar.

  3. In medium bowl, whisk together melted butter and brown sugar (whisk until there are no brown sugar lumps).  Whisk in the egg, then whisk in the vanilla.

  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the large bowl with dry ingredients and stir to combine with a wooden spoon.   Cover the bowl with saran wrap and place in the fridge for at least two hours.

  5. After the 2 hour chilling time, remove dough from furniture and let set at room temperature for about 10 minutes.  You are then ready to scoop the dough into 1 1/2 tablespoon size dough balls.  Roll the dough between with your hands.

  6. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  7. Pour 1/3 cup with granulated sugar into bowl.  Roll the dough balls in the granulated sugar, then place about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.

  8. Bake for 8-9 minutes, then open oven, pull oven tray out and very gently press down on top of cookies.  This will create a crinkle look on top of cookie.  Place back in oven and cook for 2-3 minutes.

  9. After removing cookies from oven, keep cookies on pan for 10 minutes, before moving cookies to wire rack to finish cooling.  Enjoy!
