Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

Cookies, cookies, cookies. They are everywhere. We have cookie dough in our fridge, cookies on the counter, cookies in the oven, and cookies in our freezer. I also have more than my fair share of cookies in my belly:) Tis the season for cookies! Oh, how I love this time of year.

I love making my favorite holiday cookies, but I also enjoy trying new cookie recipes every year. I recently made Monique’s Brown Butter Snickerdoodles and fell in love. They take the traditional snickerdoodle to a whole new level!

If you haven’t experienced browned butter, you are missing out. It brings out the very best in butter. And the brown butter really shines through in these snickerdoodles. It adds a slight nutty and caramel flavor that is out of this world. The cookies are crisp around the edges and soft in the center. I couldn’t wait for them to cool and I am glad I didn’t because they are sooooo good right out of the oven. They melt in your mouth!

For step-by-step photos and the Brown Butter Snickerdoodle recipe, head on over to Tasty Kitchen. You need to make these cookies. They are a new favorite at our house and I think you will enjoy them too!
