Incredibly Delicious Brown Butter Meltaway Cookies
Sometimes the simpler things are the best ones. These Brown Butter Meltaway Cookies may not look like much but each bite packs a punch of huge flavor of butter and vanilla with a crumbly melt in your mouth texture.
If you’re leaving cookies and milk out for Santa this year, I recommend these ones. He will give you much more generous gifts after having just a few.
I am a huge fan of baking with brown butter. It has a deep nutty taste that permeates the flour and creates a wonderful moist product. You can choose to dust them with confectioners sugar or leave them as is. I chose to dust them because it gives them a “snowed in” effect that is perfect for winter.
For these meltaway cookies, I rolled them into balls and then used a cookie stamp to create a cute flower pattern. You can do any shape you may like, although I do not recommend using cookie cutter since this dough tends to be on the sticky side.
No cookie recipe is complete with a glass of delicious milk on the side. They just go together. In this case, I choseÂ DairyPure Milk. Not only it has a delicious creamy taste, it also has noÂ artificial growth hormones and it comes fromÂ cows fed a healthy diet.
DairyPure is the only milk backed by an exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise. DairyPure milk contains no artificial growth hormones, is tested for antibiotics, is continually quality tested to ensure purity, only comes from cows fed a healthy diet and is cold shipped from your trusted dairy
