Monday Munchies...

I've been on a bit of a cookie kick lately; hey, they're a simple crowd pleaser!  
I was on the hunt of a different cookie, one that would catch people off guard, which is exactly what this cookie did.  I'm all over any cookie that requires real butter-any of you ever typically bake with non-dairy alternatives, but then use the real deal? Mind blown, it's so delicious! I now look for recipes that call for butter, which uh, hello....let me present to you:

Brown Butter Cinnamon Crinkle Cookies  (this is essentially the vanilla version of the regular crinkle cookies)
10 tablespoons of butter, sliced 
2 1/2 cups flour 
1 teaspoon baking powder 
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 cup sugar 
1/4 cup light brown sugar 
2 eggs 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
1/2 cup powdered sugar 

Melt the butter over medium heat in a saucepan until it begins to foam.  Continuously whisk or swirl the pan of butter for 2-3 minutes until it turns into a deeper yellow color.  Sidenote-I never saw a change in color I don't think. Remove it from the heat and allow it to cool.

Whisk the baking powder, flour, cinnamon and salt in a separate bowl.  

In a mixer with a paddle attachment, mix the sugars and butter on medium speed.  Add in the vanilla and eggs, mixing just until smooth.  Reduce the speech and add in the flour mixture until it's just incorporated.  Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.  

Preheat the oven to 350, and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.  

Fill a shallow bowl with the powdered sugar and divide the cookie dough into tablespoon sized balls and then roll it in the powdered sugar.  Place it on the lined pan, 2 inches apart.  

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until set. Mine needed a few extra minutes!
