  • 9 tablespoons (126 g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) pure vanilla extract (see notes)
  • 1 1/2 cup (210 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 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.
