  • 1/2 cup butter, softened to room temp
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, large
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x9 baking dish with non-stick foil (or spray with baking spray).

  4. Add in flour and cornstarch, mixing until combined.

  8. Allow to cool before slicing.
  9. Enjoy!
