My sister is to thank for these incredible Oatmeal Coconut Cookies with Brown Butter. If you are new to my site, brown butter is – basically, magic! It elevates just about everything giving it a deeper, richer, more intense flavor that smells wonderful, too!

A couple weeks ago she was whipping up some Oatmeal Coconut Cookies when I stopped her in her tracks and made a few adjustments. They turned out so delicious that I saved them for Fall Cookie Week. If you’re just joining, it’s Day 4, which means Michael and I are sharing recipes 7 and 8! Stop by for his Chocolate Dipped Gingerbread Cookies and peruse his inspiring fall decorating ideas. I just love his new home!
