Brown Butter Easter Cookies
Serves: 12 large cookies
- 14 tablespoons butter
- ½ cup sugar
- ¾ cup dark brown sugar

- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1¾ cup flour
- ¾ cup white chocolate M and M's (or favorite flavor), plus more to garnish
- 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped into small chunks
- Preheat oven to 375º.
- Melt 10 tablespoons of the butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat till melted. Continue cooking a couple more minutes till butter is golden brown with a nutty fragrance. Pour into heat-proof bowl, and add the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter. Stir till melted.
- Add sugars, then vanilla. Mix in egg and egg yolk. Add baking soda, then flour and mix till just combined. Add M and M's and chocolate chunks.
