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.

WHAT IS BROWN BUTTER?

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!

Happy baking!

My roommate hates glitter more than anything…but I can’t stop using it! Look how amazing our @sweetsindeed Edible Glitter Spray makes this cupcake look!

But I have agreed to only use glitter in my studio though. I feel like that is a fair compromise 🙌

Pricing was one of my biggest struggles in the beginning. I was always overthinking it and trying to analyze what other people were charging.

But with the Pricing Calculator, I no longer had to stress out about it. The calculator simply just told me what I needed to charge. It was AMAZING and a total game-changer.

And now I want to help make pricing easy for you too. Check the link in my bio to see how you can use the calculator in your business!
