Soft Chewy Brown Sugar Cookies
So my sister (Holly) made me these cookies a few days ago & I liked them so much I just made them again! When she first made them she set a plate in front of me with 4 cookies on it & I ate them all! My sister had walked away after she set the plate down so she didn’t know I ate them all in like 2 minutes flat, when I told her she just laughed. I knew I was going to be asking for the recipe from her immediately.
I think it’s been 2 days since I first tried this delicious recipe & I just had to make them again. I’m crazy over sugar cookies & these cookies tasted so good with the brown sugar in them that I loved them at first bite! They are soft, just a little bit chewy & they have a nice buttery flavor to them. This recipe is basically a chocolate chip cookie recipe without the chocolate chips, weird right? But if your craving a slightly different flavored cookie or you’ve ever wondered what a chocolate chip cookie would taste like without the chocolate chips then give this recipe a try!
It makes a big batch, about 50 cookies so if you don’t want that many you could make half a recipe.
