Brown Butter Cookies
  1. 1 cup (2 sticks) Challenge European Style Unsalted Butter
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
  4. 1 egg
  5. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  6. ½ teaspoon salt
  7. ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  1. 1

    Melt butter in a small skillet or saucepan over medium low heat. Cook, stirring so the butter cooks evenly, until the butter develops a deep amber color and a “nutty” aroma. Chill brown butter in the refrigerator until just firm (about an hour).

  2. 2

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  3. 3

    Cream butter, sugar and corn syrup together until light and fluffy.

  4. 4

    Beat in egg. Combine flour, salt and baking soda; and blend into creamed mixture.

  5. 5

    Use a small cookie scoop or form the dough into 1-inch sized balls and place 1½-inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer cookies to wire racks; let cool. Store in airtight container.

Note: Yields about 6 dozen (1¾-inch) cookies

These are awesome! I didn't get anywhere near 6 dozen, but I used a bigger scoop so my cookies ended up being about 3-inches wide. Nice, easy, recipe with good results.
