Cookie Dipped in Glass of Milk

How To: Brown Butter

The smell of beurre noisette is probably one of my favorite smells. Whenever I cook up a big batch of it to keep for my cookie dough, it's almost impossible not to smile as its warm, nutty, and almost toffee-like aroma wafts through the air and into my nose. Making it is an extra step to take, but one that's definitely worth it if you want more flavor out of your butter!
