Chewy Brown Sugar Cookies

These brown sugar cookies are a fun twist on the traditional sugar cookie. Thin and chewy, and loaded with brown sugar flavor. Brown sugar gives these cookies and almost caramel like flavor, much different than traditional granulated sugar. Needing only 30 minutes to chill, these come together quickly and only require a handful of ingredients!

Using a portion scoop ensures even sized cookies and even baking

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, line a baking sheet with parchment, set aside.

In the bowl of a stand or hand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together until creamy, about 3-4 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract, and eggs one at a time. Scrap down the sides of the bowl and mix until incorporated.

In a small mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix on low until fully combined. Cover the dough and allow to cool for 30 minutes.

Using a cookie scoop or measuring spoon, measure even sized scoops of dough and transfer onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between each cookie. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. The cookies will be soft, but will set up. Allow to cool slightly on the baking sheet, transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container for up to a week!
