I’ve just recently been introduced to browned butter, and it’s changed my life. Now browned butter isn’t anything complicated like I thought it was, it’s simply butter that’s been browned on the stovetop, without burning it. Then you simply use it in any recipe that calls for softened or room temperature butter. It’s pretty easy, so long as you don’t burn the butter.
Here, I’ve used Land O’Lakes (unsalted) butter and browned it before adding it to a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe. This recipe is based on the famous Nestle Toll House recipe. It cooks up perfect every time, just be sure for best results to refrigerate the dough before baking the cookies to get nice fat cookies, and not flat ones.
Land O’ Lakes also has a fabulous new Olive Oil and Sea Salt butter that I’ve told you about before. I was fortunate enough to try it right when it came out, and am still waiting on my local grocery store to carry it, because it’s the best butter ever. Ree, The Pioneer Woman also loves it! She’s been developing all sorts of new recipes with it. Hopefully this wonderful butter is available in your area now.
Now time for the giveaway! One lucky winner is going to win:
- SIGNED copies of BOTH of Ree’s amazing cookbooks.
