Brown Sugar Cookies


14 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


Preheat oven to 350 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

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.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the browned butter and brown sugar until well-blended.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

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.

Mix the flour mix into the cookie dough, stirring until just combined.

In a small bowl, combine the sugar and brown sugar.

Scoop the cookie dough into balls using a 1 1/2 tbsp cookie scoop (or just scoop it into rounded tbsp). 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.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until starting to set around the edges. Allow to cool before serving.
