Brown Sugar Cookies

Brown Sugar Cookies
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter
3 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbsps. hot water
4 cups flour
1 heaping tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
  • Cream sugar and butter until fluffy, then add eggs. 
  • Mix soda and hot water, add to mixture, mix well. 
  • Mix flour, baking powder and salt and add to mixture one cup at a time. 
  • Add vanilla. 
  • Chill batter thoroughly. This is a very soft dough, but it can be handled nicely if chilled. 
  • Roll and cut. 
  • Bake for 7 to 9 minutes until lightly golden at  350 degrees, do not overbake. 
 Makes a soft cookie. I also use this recipe as a drop cookie. I don't chill the batter and just drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake as above.
