Brown Sugar Cookies (via from Eats Well With Others)
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
14 tbsp butter, unsalted
1 3/4 cup brown sugar
2 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 tbsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup 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 1½ 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.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until starting to set around the edges. Allow to cool before serving.
