Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

WOW. That’s all I have to say these cookies are amazing. Brown Butter Snickerdoodles cookies are the best snickerdoodles I have EVER encountered. Brown butter truly does makes everything better. But we already knew that didn’t we? Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.

These cookies are thick, puffy, snickerdoodle-y with caramel nutty hints in the background of the cookie.

Seriously Monique came up with a WINNER with this recipe.

This dough is relatively easy to make you just need to chill it before baking. 3 hours to be exact.
