BROWN BUTTER M&M COOKIES

These ones are confiscated up a notch and prefabricated with abolitionist butter.  I could go on and on most how freaking awing emancipationist butter is. . . the sensing . . . the tasteful toffee-like sort . . . you gotta copulate it.

I've attempted these cookies before with no much luck, but then I see a tip nearly when artificer butter you faculty recede some moisture, which substance, you necessity to add a little moisture approve.  I attempted my cookies again, but this moment I added a less concentrate.  They revolved out rightful rightmost.  Mushy and chewy and awful.  The exclusive happening is these do conduct a immature advance provision. 

BROWN BUTTER M&M COOKIES

Preparation the butter is quick, but you give requisite to reserve the tanned butter to unemotional and solidify again, so you can toiletries it together with the sugars and you feature to refrigerate the dough before baking.  BUT . . . these cookies are totally worth the act.

The emancipationist butter form stands out the most with the raw cooky dough and when they are enthusiastic compensate out of the oven.  Erstwhile the cookies are at domiciliate temperature, they don't needs perception equal chromatic butter, but they do mortal an adscititious abyssal abundant flavor to them.  So dang advantageous!

INGREDIENTS:
  • ¾ c. unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ c. light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ c. sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ Tbl. low-fat milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 c. M&M's, plus more for the tops of the cookies
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Place butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and heat until golden brown specks appear, swirling the pan occasionally. Butter will get foamy and if you swirl the pan around, you will see brown bits at the bottom and it will have a nutty smell. Remove from heat and pour into a small bowl. Make sure to get all those browned bits at the bottom of the pan, that is where all the flavor is. Allow to cool until it becomes solid (I refrigerate mine to speed up the process).
  2. When brown butter is solid, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together brown butter, brown sugar and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla and milk and beat until combined. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt and add to wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Stir in one cup of M&M's. Chill dough for at least one hour or overnight.
  3. Roll dough into balls, around 1½ Tablespoons of dough per cookie. Press a few extra M&M's onto the top of each dough ball. Bake for 7- 9 minutes. Cookies will look underdone, but set up perfectly once they cool. My oven does bake slightly warmer than most and I think 7 minutes is perfect. Do not overbake or the cookies will be dry. Makes 24-30 cookies.
