Introduction: Embrace the warmth and sweetness of a timeless classic with a batch of Brown Sugar Cookies. These cookies celebrate the essence of comforting flavors and chewy textures while remaining simple and indulgent. With each bite, you’ll get the familiar hug of brown sugar, a hint of caramel notes, and a dance of vanilla on your taste buds. These cookies are a reminder that life’s simple pleasures are often the most satisfying, whether enjoyed as an afternoon treat or a midnight indulgence.


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


1. Preparing the Canvas: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Creamy Harmony: In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened unsalted butter and packed brown sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.

3. Binding Elegance: Add the large egg and vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture. Mix until well combined and the mixture is smooth.

4. Floury Dance: In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add this dry mixture to the wet mixture, stirring until a soft dough forms.

5. Shaping the Magic: Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, portion out small amounts of dough and roll them into balls. Place the dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each one.

6. Gentle Transformation: With the back of a fork, gently flatten each dough ball, creating a crisscross pattern on top. You can dip the fork in flour if it sticks to the dough.

7. Baking Bliss: Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.

8. The Cooling Ritual: Once out of the oven, let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
