Snickerdoodle Cookies with Brown Butter

December 10, 2012 in Cassie, Sweets

These cookies are totally worth having to do an hour at the gym later. Every now and again we need to indulge in a really good, soft cookie.

I’m not sure where the name snickerdoodle comes from. Personally, if I was in the business of cookie naming, I’d call it a Cinnamon and Sugar Cookie, but hey, I’m OK with its name as long as it tastes like it does.

If made right, these should cook up into fluffy little pillows of sugary goodness. Trust me on this – they will if you do it right. Storing it in the fridge is not optional. You need to make the dough at least 3 hours before you plan on baking them, if not longer. Mine sat in the fridge for 10 hours and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. And yes, when you take it out of the fridge to make them, the dough looks like a dry, crumbly mess.

That’s OK.

Promise.

Here’s how to make it!
