Delicious and so easy to bake in small batches. Just keep the dough in the fridge or freezer and slice off and make as many cookies as you want at a time.

Ingredients

unsalted butter

½ cup(s), softened

packed brown sugar

1 cup(s), dark

egg(s)

1 large

vanilla extract

1 tsp

all-purpose flour

1 cup(s)

whole wheat flour

¾ cup(s)

table salt

¼ tsp

baking soda

½ tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Add remaining ingredients and beat thoroughly.
  3. Scrape dough out of bowl and onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Roll dough into a log, about 2 1/2-inches wide; completely wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate until firm, at least 20 minutes or up to overnight.
  4. Cut dough into 1/8-inch-thick slices and arrange on several large ungreased cookies sheets about 1- to 1 1/2-inches apart. Bake until lightly browned around edges, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for about 1 minute and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Yields 1 cookie per serving.

Notes

Add some spice to these cookies by sprinkling a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg into the batter.
