What You Need to Know About This Brown Sugar Cookie Recipe

These Brown Sugar Cookies are easy cookies to make because they’re made with cookie mix! King Arthur Gluten-Free Cookie Mix, to be exact.

The base of this cookie mix has the same flavor as my base cookie dough for Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

King Arthur Gluten Free Cookie Mix is amazing on its own and makes a perfectly chewy cookie recipe. The flavor of the brown sugar and vanilla really comes through. However, if you’re looking for some mix-in ideas, I’ve included several below!

How to Make Brown Sugar Cookies

Step 1. Prepare the cookie dough according to the package directions. Cover the prepared dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Step 3. Use a large cookie scoop to portion the cookie dough into 12 balls. Roll each portion of dough into a ball and then roll in granulated sugar.

Tips for Making Gluten Free Cookie Mix

  • Chill the dough! While it’s not 100% necessary and not included in the box directions, chilling the dough helps develop the flavor of the cookie dough. 
  • See above for mix-in ideas.
  • Egg Free Option – the King Arthur test kitchen suggests using a flax egg for chewier cookies or a starch-based egg for crispier cookies.
  • These brown sugar cookies make excellent ice cream sandwiches! Just add a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream between 2 cookies and freeze until set!
