  • Who doesn’t love a classic sugar cookie? It was one of the cookies I remember baking with my mom as a child – I was the presser. I’d dip the glass in a little butter, sugar and gently press the cookie to flatten and give it a little glisten. I still love a classic sugar cookie to this day, but for fall, I love brown sugar everything, including chewy brown sugar cookies.

    Brown sugar cookies have a little deeper flavor than traditional sugar cookies because of the molasses in brown sugar. It’s so simple, yet so good! Did you know you can even make brown sugar
