Brown Butter Sugar cookie
Just a little bit nutty from the browned butter and a little hint of caramel from the brown sugar, this sugar cookie needs no enhancement from any icing... perfectly delectable by itself or paired with a warm cup of tea or coffee.
1 cup of butter
1/2 cup of light brown sugar
1 cup of granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups of flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Melt butter over medium to high heat until it bubbles and browns. You are looking for a nice golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
In your mixing bowl, beat together sugars and the egg, then slowly add the melted butter. Add vanilla, then gradually add the flour until all is well mixed.
Scoop batter and place on cookie sheet, about an inch apart. Flatten with tines of fork or spatula.
Bake about 12 minutes... let cool... Enjoy!
