Brown Butter Cinnamon Chip Cookies


I had really planned to make something that actually looked more like Christmas for Fill the Cookie Jar this month, but then I happened upon cinnamon chips at my local grocery store.  Yes, I do realize they have been around for a while, but my rural grocery store has never had them before, so I was really excited to try them.  If you are like me and think spice when you think of Christmas baking, you will think these taste just like Christmas even if they look like regular cookies.  I wanted a cookie where I could really taste the cinnamon chips and get a feel for baking with them, since it was my first time, but I didn’t want just a plain cookie, so I browned the butter before making the dough.  This really added another layer of flavor to make these just wonderful!

    I don’t know if you have been reading my blog lately, but I have been cinnamon chip crazy! They are hard to find and when I find them, I stock up on them! These look delicious. I have never made anything with brown butter before, so I will have to give these a try! Thanks for sharing at the Fill the Cookie Jar group!

    I can find them but usually only at points during the year:-( I wonder if this would taste as good with butterscotch or the heath toffee chips? I just made these with the cinnamon chips I had and they are so delightful..hard to describe just crispy on the outside and fluffy like on the inside…just a really nice cookie.
