How to make Brown Butter Pecan Cookies
You only need a handful of ingredients to make these cookies! Specifically,
you’ll need pecans, butter, eggs, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch, flour, baking soda, and salt. You’ll also need a large bowl, an electric mixer, and a baking sheet with parchment paper.
I suggest tasting your pecans to ensure they’re fresh. They should be golden in color when you purchase them. For optimal freshness, I suggest storing your pecans in an airtight container in the fridge – they’ll keep for 9 months, or up to 2 years in the freezer.
3/4 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup (1 stick, 112 g) unsalted butter, room temperature
