The addition of brown sugar makes these deliciously different from traditional sugar cookies. They're attractive and simple to make. The recipe can be easily cut in half.

"As a Volunteer Field Editor I enjoy testing recipes! Found this recipe tonight while searching for something a bit different to try. These are wonderfully chewy in the inside and crisp on the outside. I must have made mine bigger as I only got 9 1/2 dozen and the recipe says 13 dozen. They spread out quite a bit while baking so my cookies ended up being quite large (but who doesn't love a big cookie?). Will definitely be adding these into my cookie rotation!"

"These were yummy! Remind me of the Charles Chips cookies I had as a little girl. Sand tarts? One bite & I was transported!"
