What makes the perfect sugar cookie? It's all about taste and texture with these babies. Soft and chewy with just the right amount of vanilla are just the way we like them

To achieve the soft and chewy texture, cake flour is used for half of the flour content. It's finer and contains less protein, helping to produce a more delicate texture.

Another important element of these sugar cookies is the incorporation of a small amount of brown sugar in addition to the traditional granulated sugar found in many sugar cookie recipes.

Bake these cookies just long enough that they're only starting to slightly brown. That's the perfect time to pull them out of the oven.
