In a second large bowl, beat brown sugar and butter together with an electric mixer for 1 minuto. Aggiungi 1 egg and vanilla and beat for 30 seconds more. Add flour mixture in two parts, beating just until combined after each addition. Form dough into two 6-inch discs, wrap each tightly with plastic wrap and chill for 2 ore.
