Cold Butter- I used cold unsalted butter for this recipe. Using it cold helps the dough to not flatten out during baking.

Two sticks of butter.

Sugar- Standard white granulated sugar is used to make these cookies.

Brown Sugar- For this recipe, I used light brown sugar.

Eggs- Large eggs work best for these cookies.

Vanilla Extract- Using a good quality vanilla extract is important. I usually find that Costco has a great deal on pure vanilla extract.

All-Purpose Flour- You will need 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour for these cookies. Be sure to measure it correctly using the spoon and level method.

Cake Flour- Along with the all-purpose flour, you will need 1 1/2 cups of cake flour. Again, be sure to measure it correctly. Cake flour will give the cookies a chewy texture.
