If you haven’t noticed, I’m a fan of sweet and salty! That’s why I gravitate to making peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip cookies with browned butter. Earlier this week, I decided to see what happened when I browned butter for my melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies and the result was more than I could have ever hoped for. The downside? So was my intake. Oops! This browned butter sugar cookie recipe is the perfect combination of sweet and salty, perfect for fall. I topped them off with browned buttercream icing for good measure {recipe coming soon}.

Brown butter or browned butter is the magic that happens when you cook out the water in butter and the milk solids turn brown. It enhances the flavor and produces a nutty aroma that is hard to resist. It’s the perfect way to update my melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies for fall!
