  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  3. Refrigerate cookie dough for 1 hour or freeze for 30 minutes.

  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  5. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and arrange on ungreased, nonstick baking sheets.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until edges start to turn golden, 8 to 9 minutes. Let cool.

Cook's Note:

Cookies will be pale out of the oven and darken as they cool.
