How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350ºF.

    Combine 3/4 cup butter, sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add molasses, eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla; continue beating until smooth. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed.
