I have a favorite cookie frosting recipe using browned butter, but I've never put it into the cookies. Sounds like these will be my next batch of cookies. Thanks!

I'm thinking of using browned butter in my chocolate chip cookies next time, I bet that it would add some great flavor.

LOL!

Browned butter tossed with egg noodles tastes like some complex side dish, but it is so simple and delicious.

I made a batch yesterday -- mighty good. But I think maybe even better today. There was a big fight in the kitchen between these and Alix's Lemon Shortbreads, but I didn't have any lemons.

I'm toying with the idea of making a filling & pasting them together (then I can honestly only have "one" cookie for dessert).

i must be extra sensitive to the taste of baking soda or something--the tiniest, most minuscule amount of it can ruin an entire batch of bakings for me. i made these cookies using 3 teaspoons baking powder instead of half and half bp and bs, and they came out great. tin, you must be much better at self-delusion than me. i'm an unapologetic two-fisted cookie eater myself.... :)

Ah, those were the days....when I could eat anything and everything I wanted without consequences. Now even the thought of cookies puts on weight. Admittedly, my activity level has dropped seriously, but I detest excercise as such* and it's too durn hot outside to put in a nice, long work day. Now that it's Fall and cooler, maybe the calories out & in will level out and I can scarf down goodies with abandon. Gather ye rosebuds, folks, before the years catch up and play mean tricks on your waistline.

*That's flimsy, isn't it?
