Default Brown Sugar Cookies

Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  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.
