Hey everyone! Hope you are having a great week, but it is about to get even better if you try this cookie recipe. You know how sometimes when you read a recipe, you can just taste how good it's going to be and you absolutely cannot wait to make it? Well, that happened to me this morning when I saw this recipe from Amanda at Kevin and Amanda. She teases and refers to these as Secret Ingredient Christmas Cookies, but the official name is Brown Butter Snickerdoodles. The link above will take you to the recipe, and Amanda is a great photographer so she has lots of photo-steps to guide you in making these little gems of deliciousness!
This is how mine turned out.
Amanda says that the "secret" ingredients are the brown butter and the toasted pecans.
I'm totally agreeing with her on this. I usually toast pecans or walnuts for any recipe, but the brown butter is for sure a new concept to me. Guess you can teach an old dog new tricks!
The Man who claims not to be much of a "cookie consumer" has declared these to be the BEST cookie he's ever eaten. Just so you know, I followed Amanda's recipe exactly. I will definitely be making these again before Christmas so that we have plenty to share -- truly don't think what I made today is going to be around for too terribly long. Oh well, more time at the gym.....sigh!
Please let me know if you do try these and what you think. Happy baking!
