Brown Sugar Cookies

Cookies and I have never really got along. I blame it on poor timing and incorrect measuring for this general disgust with each other. Well to be honest - it's a little one-sided since I had a couple of these cookies for breakfast with my coffee this morning and loved them!

But - Thanks to our very own Sara, I tricked them into loving me back. - I now have some cookie know how.

1. I lined my cookie sheets with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
2. I used a small ice cream scoop to make sure that the cookies were uniform in size.
3. I turned my cookies sheets around half way through the cooking time for even cooking.
