Butter cookies are great, but nothing can match the unbelievable flavor of browned butter in these cookies.

I added 3/4 cup of chopped pecans to the dough. Did NOT roll in colored sugar, rather after rolling into balls, I flattened them slightly with a glass dipped on white sugar. Awesome!
easy and very tasty
This recipe is what I have been searching for decades. It is just FABULOUS.The cookies turned out perfect and were YUMMYLICIOUS. Thankyou loadss.. :)
I & my children honestly love these cookies. They aren't to sweet and they have the best flavor....Simple and easy!
I used to have this recipe from Land O Lakes that also included the recipe for a Browned Butter Frosting (browned butter, conf sugar, vanilla, corn syrup and water) and had lost it. Now with this recipe and my memory of the frosting, I have my kids favorite cookie back! My kids love the White Velvet Cut Outs cookie recipe for Christmas but after having these they say these are the best! The frosting is a must for that cut out cookie flavor!
My husband has high sugar. I have tried numerous recipes subsituting a sweetner for the sugar. These where awsome. They reminded me of the good old christmas sugar cookies my mom used to make. (even with the sugar subsitute). Will make these again. PS: I also got sugarfree icecream and made him icecream sandwiches with these cookies.
So easy to make and delicious!
I made this recipe and it was wonderful. I will pass it on to friends and love ones. i added black walnuts to a batch and chocolate chips to the other batch, the taste was excellent.Thanks for sharing.

Every year around this time, I start to panic a little. How am I ever going to decide what cookies to bake for the holiday season?! Do I stick with the classics or try something new? How many can we eat at our house (more than I care to admit…but cookies count as part of a balanced breakfast, right?) Without self-restraint, I could probably make a dozen different kinds!
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a

‘Tis the season to make all things sweet – cookies, cakes, and candies. Yes, even candies – those “sometimes tricky” treats that make the holiday so special. More ...
