Brown Butter Sugar Cookies
Brown butter takes a fun twist on a traditional sugar cookie by providing a nutty flavor that balances the sweetness of the cookie.
- 1 ¼ cup brown butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoon sparkling sugar optional
Cream together butter and sugar for 3-5 minutes until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Add remaining ingredients until just combined. Place in an air-tight container and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350F. On a floured surface, roll out dough until ¼" thick. Using cookie cutter, cut out cookies. Place on lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with sparkling sugar and bake for 12-15 minutes.
For best texture, store in air-tight container overnight.
