  • 1 1/2 cup (210 gr) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (100 gr) brown sugar
  • 9 tablespoons (128 gr) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) pure vanilla extract (see notes)


  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350º F (180º C). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Using an electric hand mixer or a stand mixer, beat butter on medium speed for 2 - 3 minutes, or until creamy and pale in color. Add brown sugar and continue beating for 2 -3 minutes, until creamy and fluffy. Beat in vanilla; beat to until combine.
  • Reduce speed to low speed, add the flour and salt; beat until just incorporated. If the dough looks grainy, don't worry, turn off the mixer, and put the dough together with your hands until uniform and smooth.
  • Form 12 tablespoon-sized balls and slightly flatten with your hand. Alternatively, you can use a cookie stamp to flatten them.
  • Place them in the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
  • Cool on the pan for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


STORE in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
You can also use one vanilla bean, split and scraped, or one teaspoon of vanilla paste. To do that, just put the bean on a cutting surface. Using the tip of a paring knife, cut the bean lengthwise. Use the point or edge of the knife to scrape the seeds loose from the pod. Store any unused beans in the refrigerator wrapped in plastic wrap and then in a sealable plastic bag.
