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!

  2. Woah this look amazing. I just saw a version of these on Tracey’s blog yesterday- I guess I have to make them next!

  3. So funny – I made the dough last night. In my fridge now. I’m thinking I’m going to make sandwiches out of them with a Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter filling.

  4. Oh Maria- thank you for introducing us to this recipe! I have a friend who obsesses for snickerdoodles and I will be making him these ASAP!

  5. I met Monique last weekend at Mixed, and she is so sweet and talented! Her recipe for snickerdoodles look amazing! Brown butter? Yes, please!!

  6. I’ve had my eye on Monique’s cookies for awhile, too! They look awesome and I adore snickerdoodles & browned butter!

  7. My SIL has been asking for snickerdoodles for a while now. I think I wil make these ones bc they look so perfect! The brown butter in there sounds just amazing!!!

  8. Just made my first brown butter cookies last week, and they were so good. I am not hooked. And with the cinnamon of a Snickerdoodle – yum!

  9. Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies, and brown butter is pretty much my most favorite thing ever. Gotta bake these cookies!

  10. I browned butter for the first time last week…what did I wait so long for?!? These cookies look fabulous! You somehow made a classic even better.

  11. These were literally making me drool looking at the photos! I have never made brown butter anything and I need to start with these!

  12. i love how big and fluffy these look! they’re like pillows. with brown butter scent. ๐Ÿ™‚ to die for!

  13. I’m basically obsessed with snickerdoodles and anything with brown butter, so these are getting made. Soon.

  14. snickerdoodles are great, but brown butter snickerdoodles are even better! they look so gooey and delicious.

  15. Just came out of the oven. Very yummy, slightly different from snickerdoodles but familiar enough that they are a guaranteed hit!

  16. I just blogged about some classic, thick, and chewy (and oh, so buttery!) snickerdoodles that I made, but that brown butter color in your cookies have hypnotized me and I want to bake these too!

  17. I can’t find the recipe for the carmel snickerdoodles. Can you send it to me?
    Thanks, Kathy

  18. Oh.My.Goodness. I just made these for the first time, and they are heavenly!! For years I have been searching for the perfect snickerdoodle recipe, and I have finally found it. The texture is perfect, and the flavor is out of this world! Thank you for sharing your yummy recipes. All of my favorite cookie recipes come from you. ๐Ÿ™‚ You are definitely the Cookie Master!

  19. Made over the weekend, I am a personal trainer so I normally don’t indulge. However I ate about 10-12 of these as they are so good:)

  20. Should it be 1/2 or 1 cup of butter? I am getting ready to make these cookies but the photo and recipe on tasty kitchen are slightly confusing when it comes to butter. In the photo the butter looks like two half sticks equaling 1/2 cup of butter. The recipe calls for two sticks which is a cup. I tend to assume that “stick” refers to a traditional size but dont want to put twice as much butter in recipe as it needs.
