Brown Sugar Cookies

I don't think I've ever made these myself. Not sure why I collected the recipe.


  • 2 cups sifted flour, less if possible
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • granulated sugar, for decorating


  1. Blend 1 cup flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in egg, vanilla, and cream.
  4. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture
  5. Add enough of the remaining 1 cup flour to make the dough stiff enough to roll.
  6. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill several hours.
  7. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  8. Place on a lightly floured cutting board and roll to 1/8" thickness.
  9. Use floured cookie cutters to cut into shapes.
  10. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.

No idea where I got this.
