Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

It's been a very long time since my last post. Life just seems to get in the way and take over. Sometimes I feel like I'm standing on the corner, watching my life go by but not participating in it.
Too fast, too much- gotta slow down and take things easy, get priorities in order and do what I need but also what I love. And that is baking! The summer has been so hot here ( I know it's already October, but here you'd think it was the middle of July) that the thought of going into the kitchen and turning on the oven has been a complete no-no.

I have also returned to work after a wonderful sabbatical year and it has been much more difficult getting back into the groove than I had imagined. But that's another story altogether.
To keep my sanity and follow my thoughts of doing what I love, I am finally getting back to some baking. 

Snicker doodles are a basic old-fashioned type of cookies, that believe it or not, I had never tried. They sounded uninteresting and dry to me - just never caught my fancy. This was my opportunity to give them a try since I trust and respect and love just about every recipe that comes from Baked. If they make them, then they've got to be good. 

Browning the butter was easier than I had expected. The cookies came out great, with the amazing help of my granddaughter , Ronny. She did all the rolling in cinnamon and placing them on the cookie sheet. We had so much fun!
You can find the recipe here, at Baked Sunday Mornings. Give them a try, you won't be sorry!

  1. Your cookies look great...nice and puffed up. I know what you mean about time getting away from you. Baking is a great escape from it all and definitely something I need in my life too.
    I loved these cookies and will definitely be making them again.

  2. It's so nice to see you back baking with us, Yael! Yes, I can only imagine that you wouldn't want to turn on the oven. I can also relate about how hard it is to get into the groove of the new school year-- but as you said, another story altogether. Anyway, your snickerdoodles look great! I just loved these-- the brown butter is heavenly. How nice that you have a lovely baking assistant-- I'm sure that makes it even more fun! :)
