Brown Sugar Cookies

INGREDIENTS

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup butter, at room temperature

1 3/4 cups brown sugar, packed

1 teaspoon molasses

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup granulated sugar, for rolling

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a small mixing bowl, combine flour and baking soda. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy and smooth. Add the brown sugar and molasses and beat until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add the eggs and vanilla, beating until combined, then add flour mixture, blending until combined.

Form the dough into walnut-sized balls and roll each ball in the granulated sugar, then place on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake about 8-10 minutes until the dough is set and just barely starting to brown. Remove from oven and cool in pan a few minutes before moving to wire rack to cool.

Yield: about two dozen
