  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk or water
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • In a large bowl, beat the brown sugar, butter, buttermilk and egg until creamy and well blended. (The mixture may look curdled which is fine.)
  • Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt just until blended.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Position an oven rack in the center of your oven. Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
  • Drop cookie dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake in the center of the oven until almost no indentation remains when touched, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
  • Repeat with the remaining cookie dough, being sure that the cookie sheets are cool before placing dough on them.
