Browned Butter Sugar Cookies With Candy Corn Sprinkles Recipe
Truly, nothing quite smells as good a home baked cookies in the fall. The aroma just fills the home with sweet memories of going to your grandparent's house, or even cooking with your family. I would at times hover around the kitchen vicinity hoping to get the first cookie of the batch. What I really love about this Browned Butter Sugar Cookie with Sprinkles is the fact that it uses browned butter and brown sugar! The browned butter adds so much richness to the recipe, it tastes almost totally different when using the browned butter. The brown sugar offers an unsurpassed uniqueness and together with white sugar, you get both flavors of each sugar all in one!
This recipe is perfect for all during the fall! Whether or not your family does Halloween, you can make these delicious super easy cookies for ALL occasions throughout the fall. Many schools for instance, prohibit anything "Halloweeny" . Instead, they celebrate with fall harvest festivals and activities. Just the same as most Churches and places of worship. These cookies are sprinkled with beautiful fall colors, rather than bats and such. You can even bake these any time of the year and for all occasions by switching out the sprinkles for the theme or even chose to not put the sprinkles, either way they are decadent just the same.

My daughter rang me as she was planning to come to visit me and other relatives nearby, so I figured why not bake these cookies for her? I knew she would most likely share them with her co-workers or her close friends and this recipe makes plenty to go around! I prepared the recipe the night before and refrigerated them overnight. This recipe was super easy to prepare and didn't break the bank either. The next morning I went ahead and baked them, and let me tell you, they came out PERFECT! Look how pretty they came out! I won;t lie, I HAD to try one before giving them to my daughter. A great chef always tastes their creations first. They had that rich buttery flavor I was hoping for and not overly sweet. A perfect balance of ingredients in every bite. They were slightly chewy and crispy at the same time...delish!
After I allowed them to cool, I carefully placed them in an air tight container. I found this cute container at a nearby store that had fall leaves imprinted on them, it was perfect! Little additions like that make giving even better, just a nice little extra touch. When my daughter arrived, the second I opened the door she got a huge grin..she KNEW I had made her cookies! The entire house smelled so good, nothing says welcome home like that! I can tell she is MY child, she couldn't wait to eat one right off the bat. She absolutely loved them! I asked her if she was going to share them, I got a "Maybe" haha. Whether or not she chooses to share them, she ALWAYS shares the recipes with others.
Not only were these cookies easy to make, but I spent less than 10 bucks making them! They taste much better than store bought cookies even from their bakery. They are fresher, more flavorful and made with love. I will most definitely be using this recipe throughout the year for all occasions. As we have the holiday season approaching, I will make sure to use red, green and white sprinkles as well as different shades of blue depending on the particular festivity. The stores usually sell little Christmas trees, or snowflakes..this recipe is just so versatile!
Sharing this recipe or saving it for future use is super simple, all you have to do is print out the card! You can share my blog with friends on social media as well as this recipe, believe me they will thank you later! I hope you enjoy these Brown Butter Sugar Cookies with Candy Corn Sprinkles as much as my daughter and I did! Oh, and if you have been wondering if she had shared the cookies I gave her? Lets just say she couldn't stop eating them!
