Recipe #188 Good Sugar Cookies

I found this recipe earlier to-day, while waiting to see how lousy our Spartans would play in Ann Arbor. I have made these and eaten about half of the 4 dozen tasty, moist treats in consolation of our loss.

2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch salt
3/4 cup melted butter
1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
granulated sugar to roll cookie balls in

Whisk together flour, cornstarch, soda, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine melted butter and brown sugar until no lumps.
Add egg and mix well; add vanilla and mix well.
Pour wet ingredients into flour mixture and beat until just combined with a wood spoon or rubber spatula (actually, use whatever you want - the recipe I followed suggested these two!)
Cover the bowl and refrigerate for about 2 hours - don't skip this step.

Preheat oven to 325 and spoon out rough balls of dough. Roll into nice balls and place in granulated sugar before placing on cookie tray. Cook for 8 minutes, pull out of the oven and press down lightly with a (sugar laden) spoon to flatten in the middle. Back into the oven for another 3-4 minutes until done. These times may vary depending on your oven.
Remove to a wire rack to cool and enjoy with a large glass of milk.
Less time in the oven for soft, more for crispy - depending on how you like them.
