my favorite holiday has come and gone. how can thanksgiving not be your favorite holiday? a turkey trot in the morning, all you can eat seafood buffet in the afternoon, and round it out with a movie!

what? that’s not what your thanksgiving is like? photo 2[1] (4)

so i don’t have the typical thanksgiving. i don’t have the typical family either! we do our big family thanksgiving on saturday instead, and don’t you even judge with the seafood buffet, who wouldn’t want crab legs and crab stuffed mushrooms with turkey!

but i do love my family thanksgiving! turkey, ham, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, mac n’cheese, homemade rolls, and stuffing. uh i am drooling just thinking about it! and this year your girl actually pitched in and helped with all that! i really am becoming domesticated! photo 3[1]

the big hit though… brown sugar browned butter cookies. how come it’s taken me so long to find out about this whole browned butter thing?! so. stinking. delicious. i know what you’re thinking, how is browned butter any different from regular ole butter? i don’t know the chemistry behind it, but it’s just different and tasty! will you please please please make these for christmas?!?! you’ll be the talk of the town, or the table!

brown sugar browned butter cookies (adapted from susie’s qt pies)

2/3 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup sour cream

browned butter frosting

1/4 cup butter

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 tbsp milk

preheat oven to 350 degrees. mix together butter and brown sugar in mixer on medium speed. add eggs one at a time and vanilla and mix well. mix in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. add in sour cream and mix well.

drop rounded tablespoons of dough on cookie sheet, bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are browned.

over medium heat place butter in sauce pan and continually stir until butter is brown, about 3 minutes. continue stirring to not burn the butter. as soon as butter is brown, in a separate bowl pour over powdered sugar and mix in milk. stir until a glaze is formed.

spread glaze over cooled cookies. if you’re feeling a little bold, top with chopped up bacon!! but only if you’re feeling bold!photo 1[1] (4)
