Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks) softened
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking sheet. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. 
  • Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. 
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients.  Set aside.
  • Add 1/4 cup sugar to a shallow bowl.  Use a cookie scoop to portion out a ball of dough and drop it into the bowl of sugar. Coat each ball of dough with sugar completely.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes- the edges of the cookies should be just starting to brown.  The centers will be soft; do not over-bake. Let stand on cookie sheet 2-3 minutes before removing to cooling rack.

Notes

The yield will depend on the size of your cookie scoop.
