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!

  • Take about two tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball.
  • Roll the ball in the brown sugar.
  • Place on a cookie sheet, about 2 inch apart from each other and bake for 8-11 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies begin to turn golden brown.

Just found this old video and I cried laughing because…
1. I still wear 99.9% black
2. I still do handstands at home
3. I’m teaching free food photo classes this week!

So it felt appropriate to repost. And also…that video of me doing the “vault” is just too good not to share.

If you haven’t signed up for the live class, check out the link in my bio. May or may not break out a handstand during class. It’s going to be live. So anything is possible! 🙌
