These are my new go to’s in the rotation of “I am feeling stressed and/or sad. I need to bake something” cookies.
They are pretty easy to make and the end result is something special. After my roommate tried them for the first time, she proudly stated, “These are my new favorite cookies EVER”. They are that good.
But what makes them so special? The combination of brown butter and brown sugar makes tastes like a little bit of heaven as they melt in your mouth.
Also known as beurre noisette, brown butter is created by cooking butter in a pan over medium heat. This process cooks out any water that was in the butter while also turning the leftover milk solids to a rich brown color. This creates a sauce like substance that has a much richer and more intense flavor than regular melted butter.
Basically, it is pure magic and will make all of your baked goods taste incredible. It gives the baked good a wonderful caramel flavor while also maintaining the properties melted butter gives your cookies (soft and chewy).
Browning butter is very simple - but it is also very easy to get a little carried away and burn the butter. You want to make sure that the milk solids are brown and not black. So as soon as the bits at the bottom of the pan have transformed into that desired golden brown color, immediately transfer the butter to a separate bowl. Otherwise, the butter continue to cook (even if it is not over the flame). Transferring the butter to another bowl ensures you keep that amazing caramely flavor!
So next time you are feeling a little stressed (or you just want to eat some delicious cookies), I HIGHLY suggest these!

I LOVE THIS COOKIES! I am typically not a cookies type of gal, but man these really hit the spot. It's so easy to make and I literally mix all the ingredients in the pot which I melted the butter. No mess. No hassle. No extra bowls to wash. From raw ingredients to warm cookies in my mouth is less than an hour. I'm definitely going to be baking these for large get togethers after quarantine!
Yay!! I love that you love these as much as I do. They really do HIT the spot! Especially when you are in need of some comfort food.
