On The Menu: Brown Butter Cookies

easy brown butter cookies recipe
on the menu: brown butter cookies
I know here we are in January which means that everyone is trying to eat healthier and I am right there with you but during the winter I love spending time in the kitchen. Which means whenever I have free time I am trying new recipes and returning to long time favorites. I almost never bake these cookies but they are my mom's favorite and she made numerous requests for a batch of these over the holidays. They are rich, decadent, and so delicious.

A lot of people get intimidated by the process of browning butter. I do not know how much people have requested this recipe from me after trying the cookies only to later to tell me they failed because they burned the butter. Browning butter takes a little time. I always keep the heat on medium-low and constantly stir the butter until it has a light nutty brown color. After the butter is melted the browning process takes about 10 minutes. I promise this brown butter cookies recipe is very easy to make once you master the butter browning process.

brown butter cookies

Ingredients:
2 cups butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup chopped pecans
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
5-6 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup hot water

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Heat butter over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until it turns nut brown in color. The foaming and bubbling is part of the browning process, but watch it carefully so that you don't burn the butter. Remove from heat, and cool slightly. Reserve 1/2 cup of the butter for the frosting.
3. Pour remaining browned butter into a large mixing bowl. Beat browned butter with brown sugar until the butter is no longer hot. Mix in eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Beat thoroughly. Mix in flour and chopped pecans.
4. Drop tablespoons of dough onto ungreased baking sheets.
5. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light brown around the edges. Allow cookies to cool on wire racks. 6. In a medium bowl, mix the reserved 1/2 cup browned butter with 2 teaspoons vanilla, confectioners' sugar, and hot water. Beat until smooth, and use to frost cooled cookies.

  28. It is well known that the cleanliness of houses is one of the most important services necessary in cleaning and upgrading our homes to the modern homes, which have been cleaned modern, which would provide the living conditions of the neighborhood and the quality of a competent body in the field with the provision of guarantees that would ensure the full guarantee of the success of the cleaning service There is no need for more money to be lost through requests for house cleaning services that do not meet their needs and are not in line with their wishes because many home cleaning companies are only seeking to offer their services through promotional methods in order to make money only without taking into consideration the ethical and professional conscience As these companies seek to satisfy customers, nothing more than this is accomplished by mastering house cleaningشركة تنظيف خزانات بالرياض
