Browned Butter Cowgirl Cookies - Guest Post by MiMi


   I created this recipe to combine my love of my cowboy cookie recipe and the way browned butter makes things taste.  I thought it would be quick to make because you don't have to wait for the butter to soften, but that backfired because it takes a while for it to cool down enough to cream with the sugar.  I have decided that it is worth the wait.  I cooled it in a glass bottom storage container so that it would cool quickly.




Browned Butter Cowgirl Cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup butter
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
3/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups oats
1/3 cups finely chopped walnuts
1 cup chocolate chips
1 to 2 T sea salt

  1. Brown butter over medium heat until a nutty brown color.  It will most likely foam up and have a few brown specks in it.  This is to be expected.  Let cool until it is the texture you would normally use when creaming butter and sugar together.  I put mine in the refrigerator to cool for a bit stirring periodically.  The larger the container you put in the quicker it will cool.
  2. Meanwhile, measure the brown sugar and sugar into your mixing bowl.  Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Stir with a whisk.
  4. When the butter is the right temperature beat it in with the brown sugar and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time until fully incorporated.  
  5. Add the flour mixture a little at a time and beat until combined.  
  6. Stir in the oats, walnuts and chocolate chips.
  7. Refrigerate the dough for at least one hour. 
  8. Preheat oven to 350 F. Drop about 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie onto a cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.  
  9. When you remove it from the oven, sprinkle each cookie with a pinch of sea salt. Remove from cookie sheet onto a cooling rack.

  8. Oh these look ridiculously amazing, Carlee! I am one of those people who just don't like nuts in my desserts, so I would leave the walnuts out (my mom calls me crazy!)! My mom and I make brown butter shortbread cookies during the holidays, and this recipe makes me think of those!

    1. My husband doesn't like nuts at all, and to be honest I love them but prefer them separate from my desserts for the most part. Brown butter shortbread sounds absolutely amazing!
