We’re in the last days of Summer, lazy days are becoming far and few in between. Back to school shopping is upon us and all I want to do is hold on to Summer a bit longer.
Like every season they must come to an end, but there’s certainly a way to enjoy Summer a little longer. And that’s with these insanely scrumptious Brown Butter S’more’s Cookies!
These remind me of a camp fire that I’ve never been to, but always wanted to have. When I think of S’mores, melty marshmallows covered in chocolate, sandwich between graham crackers seems to fit the imagination. Well, here is where imagination meets indulgent creativity and you’re gonna love this recipe.
Browned butter plays a major role in depth of taste in this cookie. It transcends a warm, subtle, and smooth nutty flavor that only brown butter can do. It certainly compliments the vanilla notes well.
Semi-sweet chocolate chips allows the cookie to have a perfect balance of sweetness without being too much. And of coarse dark chocolate has to bring about much needed balance, because there’s more that’s going into this cookie.
Just like a S’mores, we’re throwing in graham crackers and marshmallows. It wouldn’t be complete without it. And for extra finesse, which is optional, but I recommended it highly. Is adding mini milk chocolate caramel squares. Whew! Honey decadence is here for you!
I added the mini squares after they baked by cutting them into small pieces and studding them on top of the hot cookie. What you get is a beautiful finished look to your cookies. And a swell trick I learned is when you take your cookies out the oven, drop the cookie pan onto the table about two times.
Doing this will give your cookies a magazine quality look. After all I love making food pretty and I want you to do so too.
