If you want soft cookies, store between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container. A piece of apple or bread, changed frequently, will help keep cookies soft. For crisp cookies, store in an airtight container with a loose-fitting lid. If they soften, place them in an oven at 300°F for 3–5 minutes before serving.

1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup brown sugar
