These cookies radiate happiness.  They are pure joy personified in a cookie. Chewy, crunchy, and caramely – everything you want in a treat. They are addictive, so only make them if you are going to give half away, or for a large group of people; you’ve been warned.

The What:
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed tightly
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick  (1/2 cup) room temperature, unsalted  butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles

 

The How: 

The cookies will spend an hour in the freezer, do not preheat the oven just yet.

Place the brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, and butter in a large bowl and mix until they forms a smooth paste.

If you forgot to take the butter out of the fridge, simply microwave it for 30 seconds or until pliable.

Switch to a whisk and whisk in the egg and vanilla. Whisk until it doubles in size and is light brown.

Sift the flour and baking soda into the bowl, fold them in with a spatula until fully combined.

Cover the dough with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for one hour.

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

Place the sprinkles in a bowl and line a couple of cookie-sheets with parchment paper.

Scoop the dough with a spoon and form it into a ball between your palms. Roll the ball in the sprinkles and place on the cookie sheets. The amount of cookies this recipe yields depends on the size you make the balls.

Bake for 12-15 minutes. If you make small cookies, check them after 10 minutes.

Let them cool on the cookie sheets for 10 minutes before you try to move them. When they first come out of the oven they are very soft, but they harden as they cool.
