Brown Sugar Cookies are the best twist on a traditional sugar cookie, with a golden color and rich flavor. They are sweet, soft, chewy, and absolutely delicious!
Prep Time: 10mins
Cook Time: 9mins
Total Time: 2hrs19mins
2 1/4cupsall-purpose flour
1/2teaspoonfine sea salt
3/4cupunsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 1/3cupspacked light brown sugar
1/3cupturbinado sugar , for rolling, optional
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the butter and brown sugar until smooth and no clumps remain. Whisk in the egg and vanilla until smooth. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir together until combined and there are no dry patches.
Using a 1.5 tablespoons cookie scoop, make dollops of dough. Place them on parchment-line baking sheets, close together but not touching. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Place the turbinado sugar in a small bowl.
Roll the cookie dough between your hands to form balls. Roll in the turbinado sugar and place on the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 8-9 minutes (remove the cookies from the oven when the edges just barely start to brown and the middles still look wet, so they stay soft.)
Let cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
