¾ cup brown sugar, firmly packed

½ cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
½ cup vegetable shortening
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and move the oven rack to the second-lowest position. Grease a large cookie sheet and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, cream together the brown and white sugars and with the butter and vegetable shortening. If using an electric mixer, do this for two minutes. Beat in the beaten egg and the vanilla extract.
