Brown Butter M&M Cookies #SundaySupper #LaborDay

Brown Butter M&M CookiesBrown Butter M&M Cookies


On the day before we were to move Nick to college, I realized I had no homemade goodies to send along with him. Bad mama. Bad food blogger.  I opened up my pantry and saw a partial bag of mini-M&M’s and thought back to these Easter cookies made with white chocolate M&M’s. I love this base cookie with the slightly nutty flavor of browned butter and the touch of molasses from the dark brown sugar….mmmmm.  Don’t worry if the batter looks a little greasy…it’s just due to the melted butter. These Brown Butter M&M Cookies are a perfect treat for the lunch box or for a college student care package or for a Labor Day Picnic.

Tip of the day: Did you know you can make dark brown sugar at home? Just add a tablespoon of molasses to one cup of light brown sugar, mix, and it’s ready to go!
