If you’ve been following along these last 41 days, you’ve probably worked out that I have a fondness for simple cookies. I like ’em on the plain side, with a little spice and maybe a little nuts or raisins. If cookie is too sweet, say like a Chocolate chip m&m cookie, it spoils the cookie-coffee combination for me because I have to gulp the coffee to rid my teeth of the sugar overload.
What are you feelings on this cookie thing? Do you like ’em sweet, full o’ chunky things or do you go for simple like me?
Also, because life is so random and I have random thoughts, I am pretty sure Mick Jagger would so totally dig today’s cookies because of the name alone. I mean, come ON, Brown Sugar? How could he and Keith and Charlie and Ronnie not love them?
Also, beacuse life is so random and I have random thoughts, I’ve been wondering if David Bowie would be fond of lemon scented tea cookies –or maybe he is he more of an Oreo fan. Also, have you seen this? It’s “supposed” to be directed by George Clooney. Scorsese eats a cookie.
I’ll put up the gif in a separate post because Mr Goodfella EATING A COOKIE!
Brown Sugar cookies A a fav of Mick Jagger! Well, they could be.
Oven to 350F/175C
- 1 cup butter, softened 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 3 eggs 2 tsp grated lemon peel
- 3 cups flour 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp ground ginger ¼ cup extra brown sugar for sprinkle
Cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs and lemon peel; beat well.
Combine the flour, baking soda and ginger; add gradually to creamed mixture and mix well.
Refrigerate for 2 hours
On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thick, then cut with 2-in. cookie cutters. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle tops with brown sugar.
Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Move like Jagger when you eat these, but don’t spill your coffee. I’d suggest a sweet, cocoa-y Blend like Starbuck’s Cafe Verona.
Remove from sheet and cool on wire racks
