Brown Sugar Butter Cookies


Snowy cold days always call for cookies, right?! These are the perfect cookie on a wintry day. Brown sugar and butter are just so good and even better together, kind of like peanut butter and jelly. This cookie is so easy to make with only 8 ingredients that you probably already have. So, let’s warm up and bake!

What you will need:

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup granulated sugar (for rolling)

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside. In another large bowl, beat together butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy. Add in egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated. Slowly add in flour mixture until just combined. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough, roll into balls and then roll into granulated sugar. Place on prepared cookie sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes. Allow to cool a bit on cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store covered at room temp.
