Holiday cookie baking season has begun!
Am I a little late in the game? Personally, I think that it is never too late to be baking cookies, but… then I might not have enough time to experiment to get the cookies just right.
And with the holidays rapidly approaching, I am trying to make up for lost time by making cookies nonstop. My kitchen will soon look like a bakery.
And then when I return home for the holidays, my Vancouver kitchen will look like a bakery. Oh what fun!
These cookies make me so happy because, even though there is still no snow in Toronto, I can have a little snowball in the form of a cookie.
These cookies are so soft and melt in your mouth, you might not want another cookie recipe this year! This recipe makes a fairly large batch, so they are perfect for sharing with a large family or a group of friends.
These brown sugar crinkle cookies are quick and easy to make! Ready in under 30 minutes, these cookies make wonderful gifts!
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a large bowl, beat together the sugar, butter and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Mix in the baking soda. Add in the flour, and mix until fully incorporated.
Place the powdered sugar in a small bowl. Roll the dough into balls, and roll the balls in the powdered sugar until fully coated. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes, or until the cookies have spread and cracked on top. Allow to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
