  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1/2 dozen cookies 1x


Not only are these Brown Sugar Cookies loaded with flavor, I also added in cinnamon and cardamom making for a super delicious, subtley spiced bite that’s sure to please tastebuds near and far.



  • 13 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom 
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar, for rolling 


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F
  2. Prepare cookie dough: Place the butter and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat until smooth and creamy. Add the egg and beat well. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Place the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices in a separate bowl and mix well. Add to the butter mixture and beat on low until everything is well incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat again on low
  3. Bake: Form into tablespoonfuls of dough, roll into a ball between your palms and toss in granulated sugar to coat all sides. Place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart and bake until the edges are just brown and tops start to crackle, about 12 minutes. Bake one tray at a time. Let the cookie sheet cool completely between batches and repeat with the remaining dough


  • I recommend warming these up in the microwave for a few seconds before eating. They’ll be warm as if they’re fresh-from-the-oven 

  • Store in airtight container for 4-5 days at room temperature

  • To freeze, place in a single layer on a sheet tray and place in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Place frozen cookies in ziptop freezer bag for up to 3 months. Take out as many as you’d like at a time and microwave for 30 seconds on 50% power, or until warm
