Brown Butter Cookies are a rich and flavorful twist on the classic cookie, featuring the deep, nutty flavor of browned butter. These cookies are perfect for those who appreciate the complexity and depth of flavor that browned butter brings to baked goods.

The dough for brown butter cookies is made from flour, sugar, eggs, and butter that has been browned to enhance its flavor. The butter is melted and cooked until it turns a deep golden brown, releasing a nutty aroma and rich flavor. This browned butter is then mixed with the other ingredients to form a dough that is rolled into balls and baked until golden and crisp.

The result is a cookie that is crispy on the edges and chewy in the center, with a rich, nutty flavor that sets it apart from traditional cookies. Brown Butter Cookies can be enjoyed plain or enhanced with additions such as chocolate chips, nuts, or a sprinkle of sea salt.

These cookies are perfect for any occasion, offering a sophisticated and delicious treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth. They are ideal for sharing at parties, gifting, or enjoying as a comforting snack with a cup of coffee or tea.

  1. Brown the butter. Grab a pot, put in 40g unsalted butter, let cook over medium heat until the butter melt and boil and you can see brown specks form at the bottom of the pan. Off heat, transfer into a clean bowl and let cool.

  2. Soften rest of the butter. Add in brown butter and use a hand mixer to beat until light and fluffy. Add in confectioners’ sugar and beat until well combined. Gradually add in 3 egg yolks and beat until well combined.

  3. Sift in cake flour, almond flour and salt. Mix until well combined.

  4. Place the cookie dough on the parchment paper, cover with another sheet and roll it flat to 1 cm thick. Let chill for 30 minutes.

  5. Preheat the oven to 311℉(155℃). Line the baking tray with parchment paper or baking mat. Shape out the cookies with the cookie molds. Place them in the tray and let bake for 32 minutes or until golden brown. Take off the molds and let cool then serve.


By cake flour, I mean low protein flour, which normally contains 7-9% protein (Mine is around 8%). Not self-rising flour.
