Brown Butter Cookies
I have to say that normally cookies are not something that JUMPS in front of me and makes me stop my pre-planned baking…however this little cookie did that. It jumped in front of the line and said “deal with it Jennifurla – I’m first”.
What a rude little cookie, huh!
Delightfully borrowed from Sue - check out her super fab blog :
1 cup salted butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tbs sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
Sea Salt, Coconut and some I left plain.
In a small saucepan, melt butter on low to medium heat, stirring occasionally, until browned. Stir in sugars and vanilla and remove from heat once combined well. Let the sugar mixture cool for just a few minutes while preparing the flour mixture.
In a mixing bowl add flour and baking soda. Stir in sugar mixture until combined. I let the mixture rest for about 20 minutes, it was still warm at this point and perfectly mailable.
At this point you will want to pre-heat your oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and start rolling your dough into 1 inch balls. Here is where you can be creative, I dipped some balls in coconut and lightly sprinkled others with sea salt...be sure to keep a few plain - I preferred them this way actually.
Bake for 15 minutes, cool and well...enjoy! Also be sure to schedule in a few extra workouts! HA
Open up ladies and gents....
Please please do not make me eat them all....
