cookies recipes May 19, 2020


  • 1 3/4 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar + 3 tbsp. white sugar (mixed together)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a small pan, heat the butter over medium-low heat, swirling the pan often until the mixture becomes a light golden brown. Immediately remove from heat and allow to cool until semi-solid and soft. (Note: I quickly cooled my brown butter by pouring it into a large mixing bowl and placing it in the freezer for ten minutes).
  • Cream together the butter and 1 3/4 cups dark brown sugar until smooth.
  • Add egg + egg yolk, vanilla, and maple syrup, and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until well combined.
  • Roll tablespoon sized balls of cookie dough in the remaining brown sugar + white sugar mix and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes until edges are lightly golden brown. Allow to cool.
