Browned Butter Snickerdoodles -This is NOT your average Snickerdoodle!!

Browned Butter Snickerdoodles Recipe:


- 1 cup unsalted butter

- 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar

- 2 large eggs

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 3 cups all-purpose flour

- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar

- 1 teaspoon baking soda

- 1/4 teaspoon salt

- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

- 1 and 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon


1. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Continue cooking the butter until it turns a golden brown color and gives off a nutty aroma. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.

2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the browned butter and 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla extract, mixing well.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, mixing until just combined.

4. In a small bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and ground cinnamon for the topping.

5. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

6. Take about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll the dough ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture until coated. Place the coated dough ball onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart.

7. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

8. Enjoy your delicious Browned Butter Snickerdoodles!

Note: The recipe can be easily doubled if you want to make more cookies.
