a quickie

These brown sugar cookies are tasty on their own (there’s a slightly salty/sweet component -even though I left out the fleur de sel called for in the recipe -that’s delightful) but this blogger is totally right – they’re even better with some creamy vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two of them.

Brown Sugar Cookies
recipe by Comfort of Cooking

You Need:

1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
a couple Tablespoons turbinado sugar, for rolling

Heat the oven to 350. Line a couple baking sheets with parchment. Whisk together the dry ingredients. Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla. Mix in the dry ingredients. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls, then roll in the turbinado sugar. Set the cookie balls on the sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for about 10-12 minutes until lightly browned and set. To keep these soft, I would underbake them. I underbaked one sheet and they stayed pretty soft. If you like them crispy, bake them longer. Eat alone or as an ice cream sandwich with whatever type of ice cream you want.
