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?
You’ll love these thick, chewy brown sugar cookies with a touch of sea salt on top. I always add it just before I put them in the oven or as soon as I take them out. either way, if you love sweet and salty, don’t skip this step! It makes cookies so craveable!
As you may have heard, Michael and I are excited to do another Fall Cookie Week! This means I will be in yoga pants for the month of September, but it’s worth it! I can’t wait to put my new range into overdrive and spend time with my sister whipping up new fall cookie recipes!
