This is a recipe that I found on Pinterest. They call it “Brown Sugar Cookie”. It’s not the traditional white dough. You do not roll this out or use cookie cutters. This is a “drop” dough, where you spoon and drop onto the cookie sheet. This cookie looks a lot like a ginger type cookie.
•1 stick + 6 tbsp unsalted butter
•1 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
•2 1/4 cups flour
•1/2 tsp baking soda
•1/4 tsp baking powder
•3/4 tsp salt
•1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
•1 1/2 tbsp vanilla
•1/4 cup sugar
•1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1.Preheat oven to 350 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2.Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Allow to simmer until it starts to turn an amber color and smell nutty and fragrant. Remove from the heat to a separate bowl. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.
3.In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the browned butter and brown sugar until well-blended.
4.In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
5.Add the egg and egg yolk to the butter/sugar mixture one at a time, scraping down the sides after each addition. Mix in the vanilla.
6.Mix the flour mix into the cookie dough, stirring until just combined.
7.In a small bowl, combine the sugar and brown sugar.
8.Scoop the cookie dough into balls using a 1 1/2 tbsp cookie scoop (or just scoop it into rounded tbsps). Roll in the sugar mix and place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cookie dough, leaving 2 inches between each dough ball on the baking sheet.
9.Bake for 10-12 minutes or until starting to set around the edges. Allow to cool before serving.
