Remember that one time I mentioned that I have updates to tát my "other" vanilla cookie recipe? And then I never posted them? And I am a bad friend? Yikes!

A soft and chewy no-chill and no-spread vanilla roll out sugar cookie recipe.
Prep time: 15 MCook time: 30 MTotal time: 45 M
- 1 cup slightly softened unsalted butter (227 grams)
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar (200 grams)
- 1/2 cup granulated white sugar (100 grams)
- 2 large eggs (100 grams)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla (10 grams)
- 3/4 teaspoon salt (4 grams)
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder (1 gram)
- 3 một nửa cups (or 4 cups) all-purpose flour ( 490-560 grams)
How to tát cook Vanilla 2.0
- Preheat oven to tát 350°F. Line baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
- Cream the butter and both sugars together. If you have any brown sugar lumps, you should crush them up or pull them out. They make weird dents in your baked cookies.
- Add the eggs and the vanilla and mix thoroughly.
- Add the salt and baking powder and again with the mixing of the dough.
- Before you add the flour, let's have a little chat. Different altitudes need different amounts of flour. Differences in humidity will the change the amount of flour you should add. Is there a storm coming? That changes things. Add only 3 một nửa cups to tát begin with. Then add additional flour một nửa cup at a time until the dough is no longer sticky and pulls away from the side of the mixing bowl. (This happens at about 3 một nửa cups of flour for bầm...except in the winter time when it happens at 4 cups flour.) That's when you should stop if you are going to tát chill the dough overnight, or just wait for another day to tát bake it. If you are going to tát roll it out right away, add another half of a cup of flour ví it will be thick enough to tát move from the rolling out surface to tát your baking sheet.
- Bake at 350F. If you roll to tát 1/4" thick, bake for about 7 minutes. If you roll to tát 3/8" thick, bake for about 10-12 minutes.
HOW IS THIS RECIPE DIFFERENT FROM THE VANILLA VARIATION? -- The Vanilla 2.0 is slightly more dense and a little more chewy. The brown sugar gives it a light caramel flavor...kind of lượt thích a chocolate chip cookie without the chocolate chips!
The Vanilla Variation is a lighter cookie - both in color and texture
MY DOUGH IS TOO SOFT! WHAT SHOULD I DO? -- If your dough is too soft, try adding a little more flour một nửa cup at a time until the dough pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl. ALSO... If it's very hot where you live and your butter was room temperature instead of just slightly softened - you might actually need to tát cool everything down in the fridge for 10 minutes before rolling out the dough.
MY DOUGH IS TOO DRY! WHAT SHOULD I DO? -- The two most common reasons for this dough turning out dry is:
1) Not using large eggs. It's SURPRISING what a difference that makes.
2) Using too much flour. I'm not saying you used more than thở the recipe calls for - but since this recipe is written by volume and not weight, you might be adding more flour depending on elevation and humidity. Next time you make this recipe, try starting with 1 cup less flour and adding flour until it's just right. But you can still save this batch too!
Luckily, the solution to tát both of them is the same -- Crack an egg into a bowl and whisk together. Mix a little at a time into the dry dough until the dough comes together again.

SHOULD I USE SALTED OR UNSALTED BUTTER? -- If we're talking purely about science - it doesn't matter in this recipe. It's purely a personal preference. Use the butter you normally reach for. If you know you love things with just a little more salt - use salted butter. If you are someone who generally reduces salt in recipes - use unsalted butter.
HOW MANY COOKIES WILL THIS RECIPE MAKE? -- The yield for this recipe varies. It depends on how thick you roll your cookies. I can get about 3 dozen cookies when I roll them at 1/4 inch thick and use a 3 inch wide cookie cutter.
HOW DO I KNOW WHEN THEY ARE DONE? -- Watch the surface of the cookie. As the dough begins to tát bake, the butter starts melting - creating a shiny or "wet" look on the surface of the cookie. As it continues to tát bake, the outside edge of the cookie will look dry and the wet spot in the middle shrinks. When that shiny "wet" spot in the middle disappears and the entire surface of the cookie is dry -- your cookies are done!
MY COOKIES TASTE DRY AFTER THEY ARE BAKED - WHAT'S WRONG WITH THEM? -- It could be a couple of things.
1) You might be slightly over baking them. I watch the surface of the cookies and when the shiny spot in the center looks dry instead of shiny... I know they are done.
2) You might be using a little too much flour. If your butter was too warm to tát begin with, the dough will seem soft, and if you add more flour to tát make it not sticky...it will turn out dry. OR you might be adding too much flour for the amount of time that the dough sits. - This is why the recipe has two different amounts of flour. As the dough sits, the flour continues to tát absorb more moisture...making the dough more dry.
HOW LONG ARE THESE COOKIES GOOD FOR? -- It depends on how they are stored, but generally you can expect these cookies to tát taste fresh for about 7-10 days at room temperature.
WHY ARE SOME OF YOUR METRIC CONVERSIONS DIFFERENT THAN THE ONES I GOOGLED? -- Because I'm a weirdo. Apparently I don't measure "to standard". 🤣🤣 I figured it was more important that you have the best possible metric weights than thở that I match a standard. I hope you don't mind.

I use this PARCHMENT PAPER or these GRID SILICONE MATS (I love the way the silicone mats make the bottom of the cookies look...but I also REALLY love not washing the parchment paper!)
I use this DIGITAL SCALE. (But to tát be completely transparent...I've never tried any others. This one was cheap and it's never stopped working.)
