Nothing can match the unbelievable flavor of browned butter. These cookies are great frosted or unfrosted.
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
Melt 1 cup butter over medium-high heat in heavy 2-quart saucepan. Continue cooking, watching closely, 3-5 minutes or until butter foams and just turns a delicate golden color. Immediately remove from heat. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine browned butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in decorator sugars, as desired. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with tines of fork. Bake 12-15 minutes or until light golden brown. Let stand 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
For creative designs try a variety of kitchen utensils to flatten cookies (meat fork, meat mallet, cookie stamps, pastry blender, bottom of patterned glass, etc.).

Best cookies I have EVER made!
My 7yo helped me make these and he had a blast. And for them to taste so good afterwards just made his day. :)
