Today’s cookies are made with sugar, spice, and everything nice! These brown sugar and spice cookies most definitely taste like Christmas. They are comprised of dark brown sugar, cinnamon, and ginger. My oldest son told me these cookies were “legit” when he took his first sampling. I think I would have to agree.
They are like a gingerbread or gingersnap cookie, but different at the same time. They have more of a buttery element to them. One thing you need to be sure of with these brown sugar and spice cookies is that you cook them on parchment or a silpat. I tried some out without and it wasn’t good. You will end up with ugly looking puddles instead of beautifully formed cookies.
Begin by beating together some butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer for 6 minutes. Add egg an egg and beat again. Then add in baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and flour. Blend together just until combined.
Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop dough on prepared cookie sheets 2 inches apart. I used a 1 1/2 Tbsp cookie scoop. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-12 minutes until set. Remove cookies from baking sheets and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
