DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°; lightly grease (or line with parchment) two baking sheets.
  • In a big bowl, beat the butter, sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, nutmeg (if using), baking powder, baking soda, salt, and egg together.
  • Stir in the flour.
  • Add coarse sugar to a shallow dish; drop the dough by the tablespoonful into the sugar, rolling the balls to coat them.
  • Place them on prepared cookie sheets.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, until the edges are just barely beginning to brown; they will look soft.
  • If you bake the cookies too long, they’ll be crunchy, not chewy.
  • Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a rack to cool completely.
