Brown Butter S’mores Cookies – the most delicious soft and chewy s’mores cookies with a brown butter base.
Brown Butter S’mores Cookies
Are you ready for the most delicious s’mores cookies?! With summer coming to an end, this is the perfect cookie recipe to celebrate with.
During our recent trip to the beach, we snagged a bag of the Target s’mores trail mix and fell in love instantly. With little pieces of chocolate covered marshmallows, graham crackers, peanuts and chocolate chips, it’s the perfect combination of salty and sweet, and transports you to the campfire! While my sister and I were devouring the trail mix, we almost simultaneously said, “this would be so good in a cookie!”.
I instantly thought about using my Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe as the base, but felt like it needed a little twist to make the flavors stand out even more. Kenzie and I both agreed a brown butter base would be perfect. It adds a little campfire flavor!
How to Make Brown Butter
To make brown butter, just cook the butter over medium heat in a saucepan. Let it come to a boil and then watch for it to turn brown. You’ll see little brown specks too. That’s it! That’s when you know it’s done cooking. Once you’ve browned the butter, refrigerate it until it sets again. Remember, cold butter is best in cookies! It helps give the cookies a great shape.
Best Cookie Scoops
I love a big cookie, so you’ll see most of mine are made with a 2 oz. cookie scoop. My favorite cookie scoops are THESE cookie scoops from Orson Gygi. Look for the 2 oz. size.
Because this creates a fairly big cookie, the bake time is about 11 to 12 minutes. If you go for a smaller cookie, reduce the bake time by a few minutes. You’ll know the cookie is done when the edges are golden brown.
