Brown Butter Cookies

These are a recipe that Marina developed one Christmas. She spent a couple of Novembers during the last years of high school making and selling trays of assorted Christmas cookies and she was always on the look out for new cookies. I think these were a bit of an accident, but they soon became a favourite.
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup corn flour (not meal, which is coarse)
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup natural sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 oz chocolate, melted

Cook the butter over low heat until browned, let cool, then add the vanilla.

In another bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Stir into the butter mixture by thirds, make into a dough, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate two hours.

Roll out to ¼” thickness, cut into shapes and bake at 325 for 10 – 12 minutes, allow to cool. When they’re completely cooled, dip them into the melted chocolate, or you can drizzle the tops with chocolate.

Then just sit back and watch them disappear!
