Oh hey there. It’s finally Friday and I couldn’t be happier!
Why? Um, because it’s the weekend which means I can cook the five butternut squashes sitting on my counter, drink wine, definitely bake a cake or something, YouTube Joe Biden’s laugh during the debates, catch up on Dexter, go to the apple orchard and make pie, get a pedicure, run until my legs fall off because my best friend just told me we’re running a race in TWO WEEKS, eat a kale salad because I’m trying to be healthy, and do the obvious stalking of Trader Joe’s for a good two hours. No biggie.
One more thing that needs to be added to my giant to-do list? ABSOLUTELY making more of these cookies. Seriously, snickerdoodles… with brown butter! We need to have a conversation about these babies.
These are extraordinary snickerdoodles. And when I mean extraordinary, I mean that they taste like no other snickerdoodle in the world.
IN THE FREAKING WORLD.
Okay… I apologize for that writing in caps, I just drank a shot of espresso and watched the political debates so I’m a little hyped up and I don’t even follow politics. I usually just make cookies for political watching parties and pretend like I know what’s going on. But I don’t know was it just me, or was that debate seriously entertaining?
Anyway let’s get back to the cookies, because from what I can tell you guys really, really like my cookies. So I can’t really disappoint you now; I feel like I have something I need to live up to!
Now If you aren’t familiar with what a snickerdoodle is, it’s traditionally a sugar cookie rolled in a cinnamon-sugar mixture with the addition of cream of tartar in the dough for that bit of tang flavor. They’re amazing, and I swear there’s just something about snickerdoodles that are cozy and comforting around this time of year.
I used dark brown sugar in my dough, because frankly, it’s awesome and I find that a higher ratio of brown sugar vs. granulated sugar always makes a cookie more chewy and rich with that tiny hint of a caramel flavor. Of course I used an extra egg yolk for richness and added brown butter too! I find that brown butter is sort of a necessity in life; it brings a gorgeous flavor and acts like man-bait. I am serious by the way.
If you don’t know how to brown butter, I’ve created a step-by-step tutorial to show you how to make the magic happen.
These cookies are simply perfect in texture and flavor. The outside is crispy, but the inside is gooey, flavorful (from that brown butter baby), and incredibly soft. Could you imagine eating these while sipping a chai tea latte?! Swoon!
So I know you probably have a million things to do this weekend.
But perhaps you can add these delicious little cookies to your list too?
