With sprinkles! Homemade sprinkles!
I love browned butter. It smells like heaven.
I hope heaven smells like good food.
These cookies are simple to make. The longest part is waiting for the brown butter to cool and for the cookies to cool before eating them. Need to invest in an immediate cooling device.
To make these cookies we need:
2 Sticks of butter.
2 Large eggs.
1 1/2 Cups White Sugar
2 TBLS Molasses
2 Cups Flour
To make the brown butter, melt your sticks of butter in a saucepan over low heat. The butter fat and the milk solids will begin to separate, allowing the milk solids to sink to the bottom and brown. Swirl the pan taking care not to burn the butter.
As the butter melts it will start to foam. The foam can raise quiet a bit, swirl occasionally. The color of the butter will change from full yellow to a toasty brown. Full of speckles. The smell becomes a beautiful nutty toffy smell. Once all of this happens remove pan from heat and transfer to a bowl for cooling.
Pre heat oven to 350 F
Once butter has cooled, beat together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and stir in the molasses. Combine the flour. Once all is combined bring on the sprinkles! As we saw yesterday I made my sprinkles larger but for these I crumbled them into the cookies. For a cake the larger size would be better.
Bake at 350 F for 8-10 minutes. The cookies will be soft when taken out of the oven. Let the cookies remain on the cookie sheet for a few minutes to firm up.
Eat right away or store in an air tight container.
These cookies have a nice crunch and a great taste thanks to the brown butter and orange flavor sprinkles.
I enjoyed mine with coffee! Yum!
