At first glance, one might assume these cookies are actually biscuits. Or muffin tops? Or maybe even individual cakes waiting to be frosted.
Let’s get one thing straight: I despise crunchy cookies. Now I know that we’ve discussed this before, but when I eat a cookie, I want it to be something to sink my teeth into. Amen. That being said, gingersnaps just don’t do it for me. Neither do chips ahoy. (sidenote: do chips ahoy even exist anymore? to be determined).
These, friends, are the fluffiest of the fluffy.
Upon first glance, they don’t really look like anything special, but TRUST ME. Truuuuuuuuust me.
They are something special.
How could they not be when they are drizzled with an icing made from purely browned butter, powdered sugar and vanilla? I think we’ve all learned by now that browned butter makes just about anything better.
So moral of the story? Go make these. Tonight. Then give them away or else you will be tempted to sit and eat the entire batch by yourself. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
The recipe is over PBS Food —don’t miss it!
