12 Days Of Cookies A Gourmet Cookie Extravaganza...Brown Butter Cookies

On the fourth day of Christmas Glamah baked for me... Brown Butter Cookies, Chocolate Meringue Biscuits,Benne Wafers, and Navettes Sucrees! I was intrigued by the simplicity of this recipe. The Daring Bakers had used brown butter in the last challenge and I loved the aroma. As I mentioned in previous posts, the older cookie recipes on Gourmet.com don't list the ingredients and caused me some confusion as you just read the recipe.Brown Butter Sugar cookies were published in June 1961. I browned the butter and mixed up the dough. Again a dry dough like I had with Sugar Shuttles! But upon close reading I see that I only used 1/2 cup rather than 1 cup of butter. I don't like the measurements for butter given in cups. Give me tablespoons!Anyway I added some more browned butter and formed the cookies. I didn't have the blanched almond they used as topping, but in a sudden burst of inspiration I added some leftover cashew praline to the tops. Imay have just over cooked them. Bake time is 20 minutues, however I pulled them out just in time. The texture of this cookie reminds me of Pecan Sandies. Wonderful and crumbly.Be careful when packing these cookies in your holiday gift boxes.


Be sure to check out my fellow baking friends as we bake hoilday cookies from Gourmet.com.

I prefer cups (although I have measuring cups at home) to tbs when it comes to measuring butter, but grams are far better for me (no converting to do)...

Those cookies must taste wonderful!

Cheers,

Rosa

After the Daring Baker Challenge, I'm really curious to use more brown butter. These cookies look delicious!

Catching up two days here on your cookie bakes. The chocolate meringue cookies look gorgeous! I like the idea of these brown butter cookies after the D.B. Challenge too.

Brown butter is my favorite! Seriously, after that last DB challenge I want to put it in everything. (I have control, though.) These cookies sound wonderful.

I love browned butter too -- brilliant on the addition of the praline. I can just taste it! Now you need to make some brown butter ice cream to make sandwiches of these. YUM!

Andrea said...

Excellent use of the cashew praline. I like sandies, so I'm sure I would like these, too. Nicely done!

Hi Miss Glamah!
These cookies look so delicious and I wanted to say a very heartfelt belated Happy Birthday to You! I'm sorry I missed it whilst I was sick.
I'm happier at 45 than I ever was in my 20s- so see?- you have lots to look forward to. Wishing you many happy returns and all the happiness of life possible!
