These bite-sized brown butter sugar snaps require just a few ingredients, and come together to be the perfect sweet treat.

Ingredients

3/4
cup butter or margarine
1 1/2
cup Gold Medal™ flour
1/4
teaspoon baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup granulated sugar
1/2
cup packed dark brown sugar
1
egg
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
Granulated sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In small saucepan, heat butter over medium heat 4 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until deep nutty brown (watch carefully because butter burns easily). Immediately pour browned butter into large bowl; cool 10 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt until blended; set aside. Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar to cooled butter; beat with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes or until well blended. Add egg and vanilla; beat on low speed until combined. Add flour mixture; beat until soft crumbly dough forms. Press together to form ball; divide in half.
  • 3 On lightly floured surface, or between 2 sheets waxed paper or cooking parchment paper, roll out each dough half to 1/8-inch thickness. Using 2-inch cookie cutters, cut out dough into desired shapes, gently pressing together and rerolling scraps as necessary. Onto ungreased cookie sheets, place cutouts about 1 1/2 inches apart. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  • 4 Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely before storing in airtight container.
Tips  

Milk solids turn nutty brown on bottom of saucepan as butter browns. Watch carefully and stir with heat-resistant spatula to avoid burning. Although milk solids can be strained out if desired, if left in they add extra flavor and interesting appearance to cookies.

For a sparkly, crunchy top, sprinkle cutouts with sparkling sugar before baking.
