Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

These Brown Butter Snickerdoodles are so good, I had to immediately pack them up and put them in my car, so that I would actually have a few left to take to the party that I made them for.  Seriously, I have not crushed so hard on a cookie in a long time. This cookie is cool fall breezes, hot apple cider after apple picking, it is the first pumpkin carved for Halloween. It is delicious. These cookies are so good I want to write oodles of bad poetry to the hallowed combination of butter, cinnamon and sugar.  These cookies are so good they make me sound like an overwrought Hallmark greeting card.

Did I even like snickerdoodles before today? Have I ever had one like this? I thought that snickerdoodles were dry, crumbly, flavorless, bland biscuits, so far below chocolate chip on my list of acceptable cookies that I usually skip them if offered one.  But these though, are a revelation of all of the goodness that comes from a well made snickerdoodle.

  2. Liz, I seriously could not agree more on all accounts– I would wear Eau de Brown Butter along with you! (Although then people might come up and attempt to lick us randomly on the street. Which would be weird.) I love your Fall descriptions and your cookies look perfect! 🙂
