Browned Butter Brown Sugar Cookies

Time for more cookies for the cookie monsters! I love sugar cookies at Christmas. However, it is the middle of summer and making regular sugar cookies just does not seem the same. How about Browned Butter Brown Sugar cookies? Sounded good to me!  Gluten free of course, so that everyone in the house can enjoy them. Manini's flour delivered again. No one, even the pickiest, could tell they were gluten free. Score! Here are the steps: 

Gluten Free Browned Butter Brown Sugar Cookies
adapted from One Perfect Bite

1-3/4 sticks unsalted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 cups packed dark brown sugar, divided*
1  1/2 cups Maninis Multipurpose gluten free flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In shallow dish or pie plate, mix sugar and 1/4 cup packed brown sugar. 
  • Whisk flour, baking soda, and baking powder together in medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat butter in skillet over medium-high heat until melted. Continue to cook, swirling pan constantly until butter it is golden brown and nutty smelling.
  • Remove from heat and pour browned butter to large heat-proof bowl. 
  • Add remaining 1-3/4 cups brown sugar and salt to bowl with cooled butter.
  • Mix until all the lumps are gone, scraping down sides of bowl with rubber spatula. Add whole egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract, mixing well to incorporate. 
  • Add flour mixture and mix to just combined. 
  • Using an ice cream scoop, scoop up dough one at a time and drop in the sugar mixture you made. Roll in the sugar and place on the prepared baking sheets. 
  • Bake two sheets at a time, rotating half way though, until cookies are browned and puffy, about 14 minutes. 
  • Cool cookies on baking sheet 5 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack and cool completely. Repeat above steps, starting with rolling remaining dough balls in sugar mixture.

  1. I have never browned buttered anything.... It sure does look yummy. :)

  2. Are these cookies hard or soft?

  3. They are chewy. If you cook them longer they can be hard.
