Sooo about those cookies that I promised to post on Saturday. That didn’t happen. Holiday baking got the best of me and I spent way too many hours in the kitchen and before I knew it, I was covered in flour and butter and it was 45 minutes before I needed to be at a dinner party. So shower > blog post.
But GOOD NEWS: it’s Monday of a short week and I have cookies for you! Not just any cookies, but Brown Butter Oatmeal Ginger Cookies. I know, again with the brown butter. But again – it’s brown butter! It takes cookies (and brownies and pasta and cinnamon rolls and bread and rice krispies…) from great to incredible.
These cookies are filled with all of those spices and flavors that just scream the holidays. Cinnamon, ginger, molasses, and nutmeg. And of course, brown butter. The edges are a bit crispy and the center is thin and chewy. I purposely underbaked them just a bit to make sure they stayed nice and chewy so if you’re worried they’re not done when you take them out of the oven, just have faith. They will be gloriously chewy once they cool and ready to be devoured with a big mug of milk.
So tell me – do you have all of your holiday baking done?? What is still on your list? As of now I think I am done but you never know what crazy baking itch I might get late one night this week. I do know one thing – I wish we had some of these Ginger Cookies left but they were gone way too soon!
