Brown Butter Cookies

Brown Butter Cookies rule the taste buds world! I am not kidding, these babies are one of the best cookies that came out of my oven and even my kid can’t get enough of them. My kid loving these is saying a LOT, as the cute little guy usually licks the powdered sugar or tries to get out the sprinkles and doesn’t even care about the cookie.

These Brown Butter Cookies where a success, first, I had so much fun with my little guy in the kitchen. He is a cute, sweet, little helper that can’t wait to lick the spatula clean. He is also very independent and insists on measuring the flour and cracking the eggs all by himself. The cookies turned moist, dense and chewy on the inside, and with Reese’s pieces in each bite! They will melt in your mouth! Absolutely must try!

Why you’ll love these Brown Butter Cookies:

  • They are rich with Reese’s pieces which make them a show stopper dessert.
  • Incredibly fresh and aromatic.
  • Tender and buttery, the cookies melt in your mouth.
  • Easy to make and cooks in 20 minutes.
  • Perfect cookies for the holiday season.
  • Can be made 1 or 2 days in advance so you don’t have to worry about a last minute dessert.

Brown Butter Cookies Recipe Tips:

  • Melt butter over medium heat and stir it constantly, careful not to burn. The butter is done when it has a deep golden brown color. It takes about 8-11 minutes to brown the butter.
  • Make sure you use room temperature eggs, adding cold eggs to the warm butter mixture, may cause some parts of the egg to cook.
  • When you add the flour, don’t over-mix. Use a spatula to fold it until just combined. The dough will be shiny, with a caramel like flavor.
  • You can bake the cookies without any mix-ins, or you can add chocolate chips, nuts or Reese’s pieces.

How long will Brown Butter Cookies stay fresh?

The Cookies can be stored wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature for about 5-7 days.

Can you store and freeze Brown Butter Cookies?

Absolutely! Cool the Brown Butter Cookies completely and fully wrap it in plastic wrap, tightly. After that wrap in aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 2-3 months. Defrost before serving.
