Browned butter to me screams fall and smells exactly like caramel to me and makes me SO excited to eat up all of these cookies!

Instructions To Make Brown Butter Cookies

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. Make your brown butter: Cook butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, until it foams, then browns, 5–8 minutes. Scrape into a large bowl and let cool slightly, until cool enough to touch (like the temperature of a warm bath), about 15 minutes.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or using a hand mixer and a large bowl, cream together your butter, monk fruit, and brown sugar replacement until smooth and slightly fluffy looking. Then add in your vanilla and eggs and mix until incorporated.
  4. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together your almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add into your butter mixture and mix until everything is combined. Fold in your chocolate chips and chunks.
  5. Chill your dough for at least 3 hours, overnight is ideal.
  6. Using a large cookie scoop (mine is 3 tbs), scoop your cookie dough onto your prepared baking sheet (do not flatten), spread about 3 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
  7. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Enjoy!

    These are my new favorite cookies! I did use your suggestion and tested one cookie to see how far and spread and I had to put my dough in the freezer for a bit before baking, but the wait was so worth it!
