Chewy Brown Butter Cookies

Chewy Brown Butter Cookies

Sometimes you just have to eat cookies. And I don’t mean just one cookie, I mean at least three cookies. You know, like when you were a kid and you just stuffed one cookie after another in your mouth, without even one second of worry about calories or health. Your only thought around eating them was: Yummy. These are good!

A few nights ago I came across these cookies from Cooking Classy that looked like they’d melt in your mouth. After checking out the recipe, I headed straight to the kitchen to whip up a batch. They were so good that I had to revert to childhood habits and eat more than one without a worry in the world. And all that came to mind was: Yummy. These are good.

I’m not going to lie and say I felt totally wonderful the next morning, but I’m telling the truth when I say I’m glad I did it. And I’m sure I’ll do it again sooner, rather than later, because sometimes you just have to eat cookies!
