Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

If you are a fan of traditional snickerdoodle cookies, then I have a treat for you today! Here’s a recipe with a delicious spin on the classic old fashioned snickerdoodle cookie.

Made with browned butter and a heaping dose of brown sugar, these cookies are certain to be a hit at your neighborhood cookie exchange!

If you haven’t experienced browned butter yet, you are seriously missing out. It has a way of giving cookies a nutty richness and depth that regular plain butter just can’t replicate. And all of that brown butter really shines through in these snickerdoodles!

Soft and gooey on the inside, crispy on the outside, and packed nutty and caramel flavors. Simply incredible!

Ingredients:

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon whole milk

1 cup plus 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

How to make Brown Butter Snickerdoodles:

Step 1. In a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Continue cooking, swirling pan constantly until butter is dark golden brown and has nutty aroma, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-low speed for 5-7 minutes to cool the butter to room temperature.

Step 2. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and salt together.

Step 3. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and milk until combined.

Step 4. When the butter has cooled, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the browned butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until combined and no lumps remain, about 2 minutes. With the mixer on low, slowly add the egg mixture beating until well combined. With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients in 3 additions, beating just until the dough comes together. Cover the bowl and chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or up to 24.

Step 5. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment. Place the remaining 3 tablespoons sugar and 4 teaspoons of cinnamon for rolling in a shallow bowl.

Step 6. Roll 2 ounces of dough (about two heaping tablespoons) into a ball between your palms, roll the ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture, and then place it on the prepared baking sheet spacing the balls about 2 inches apart. If you desire a thinner cookie, flatten the tops of each cookie very slightly with your hand.

Step 7. Bake cookies one sheet at a time, until tops slightly cracked and edges are just set, about 10 minutes. Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack and let the cookies cool on the sheet for 2 minutes, then using a wide metal spatula, transfer the cookies to the rack to cool completely.

Enjoy!

SIDE DISH

Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents

Perfect for breakfast or as an appetizer, these super easy (and crazy addictive) sausage cream cheese crescents are a must-make!

Try making these w pimento cheese and use maple sausage instead of hot and garlic cheese bisquick, amazing!!!!!!

These are so wonderful. I also add some cheese and sautéed peppers and onions. You can also use flaky canned biscuits and make them look like little hand pies. With the crescent rolls you can make them look like pinwheels since the crescent roll dough is in a flat sheet.

Fix these all the time for church and for Scott and Luke. You don’t have to fix it all at one time either store it for up to a week and make them fresh each time. 

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time: 20-25 minutes | Servings: 8

Ingredients:

1 lb. Ground sausage (breakfast, Italian or other)

1 C. Shredded cheese of choice

8 oz. Cream cheese softened

2 Cans refrigerated crescent rolls

Pepper to taste

How to make Sausage Cream Cheese Crescents:

Step 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2. Roll the crescent rolls out flat, and cut each triangle in half lengthwise.

Step 3. Cook the ground sausage until it is completely browned.

Step 4. Add the cooled ground sausage to a mixing bowl with the cream cheese and shredded cheese of your choosing as well as pepper to taste. Stir to combine completely.

a.

b.

Step 5. Spoon a small ball of the sausage mixture into the top of each piece of crescent roll where it is fattest.

Step 6. Starting at the widest end, roll the crescent roll dough over the sausage filling forming a mini stuffed crescent roll.

Step 7. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
