Last Christmas a friend gifted us a small, square, unassuming brown box containing small, round, unassuming brown cookies. She told us the cookies were amazing. We were, of course, willing to test her theory.
For the love of COOKIES those things were good. So good that my husband, who doesn’t really care much about dessert, declared that he might not be able to stop eating them. That is really saying something, people.
Want to know what cookies they were? Of course you do! The unforgettable, buttery, just-the-right-amount-of-salty cookies were from the Brown Butter Cookie Company in Cayucos, a small town on the central coast of California.
You can, of course, grab a box next time you’re in Cayucos. I’m sure you go there all the time. You can also order the cookies online.
And, thanks to my friend Marina, you can make salted brown butter cookies in your very own kitchen. Since I discovered Marina’s recipe in her new cookbook, I have made more batches than I am willing to fess up to.
Get the recipe here! This recipe is a keeper!
