Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Cookies are the perfect winter cookie. They are soft chewy, and they have a hint of sweetness. Brown sugar is an essential ingredient in this recipe, as it gives the cookies that signature color and flavor.
The ingredients for these cookies are simple, but it is important to use quality ingredients to get that perfect cookie texture. The dough should be refrigerated for at least one hour before baking so it can firm up and make for a better cookie. The refrigeration step also allows the flavors to meld together nicely, making them easier to slice into uniform pieces after baking.
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 5 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 4 1/4 tablespoons of powdered sugar (white)
- 1 1/4 cups of flour
- 6 tablespoons of butter
- 10 tablespoons of chocolate chips
- 1 large tablespoon cinnamon powder
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (thermostat 6). Place a sheet of baking paper on a baking sheet.
- Put the two sugars, the cinnamon, and the softened butter, in a bowl. With a fork, mix everything together to incorporate the sugar into the butter. Add the egg and mix well, still with the fork.
- Once the mixture is homogeneous, add the chocolate chips. Mix well. Gradually add the flour (the dough becomes elastic).
- Form balls by rolling small amounts of dough between your hands and placing them on the baking paper.
- Bake for 15 minutes. When the cookies come out of the oven, place them on a cold plate to prevent them from continuing to cook.
- You can serve them warm or cold; the choice is yours!
