While these sweet little cookies have only a few ingredients and all in all are pretty simple, the flavor itself is anything but. They’re not just a basic butter cookie and they’re not just a basic sugar cookie, they’re a brown butter cookie that’s rolled in sugar… and that one simple step of browning the butter takes them to new heights. Seriously.
When you brown butter, it becomes nutty and toasted (and quite frankly, amazing) but it keeps all the qualities of butter that we all love so much. Basically, it’s butter that’s nuttier, richer, and even more flavorful, and it adds a wonderful flavor to anything you decide to pair it with. Like these cookies.
You start by melting the butter in a saucepan and letting it cook until it becomes brown and fragrant. You then stir in the sugar and vanilla and mix up a basic dough like you would with any cookie. (See? It’s easy.) You dredge each little ball of dough in white sugar before they go in the oven so they come out kissed with delicate sugar crystals.
The sugar gives a nice sweet crunch that gives way to a soft and pillowy cookie beneath. The butter flavor is rich and nutty. It’s really everything you could ask for from a cookie, and we think you absolutely must give them a try.
