Chewy Sugar Cookies


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes 

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 18 Cookies

Author:  Jessica Cain Montano 


  • 3/4 cup butter at room temp
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup light (clear) corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) two baking sheets. I just spray them with cooking spray.
  2. Place butter, brown and white sugar, butter, corn syrup, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and egg in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well blended.
  3. Add in flour and beat until well incorporated.
  4. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls (a tablespoon cookie scoop works well here) on prepared baking sheets, about two inches apart.
  5. Bake cookies for ten minutes until the edges are just barely beginning to brown, they’ll look soft. If you bake these cookies too long, they’ll be crunchy rather than chewy.  
  6. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to rack to cool completely.
