  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Place balls 2-inches apart on prepared cookie sheet.

    these cookies are da bomb!! I made them twice and each time they came out perfectly and were eaten so quickly I had to hide a few to have any for myself!!
    On my first try they really spread. The next day I tried them again and refridgerated the dough 4 hours and removed them from the oven after 8 minutes, this worked for me. Very tastee.
    These cookies are delicious and very chewy! My husband and kids love the cookies, they never last more than a couple of hours!
    This is a very good cookie that stays soft! I've been looking for this forever.
