How To Make brown butter oatmeal cookies

  • 1
    Heat a thick-bottomed skillet on medium heat. Add the sliced butter, whisking frequently. Continue to cook the butter. Once melted the butter will foam up a bit, then subside. Watch carefully as lightly browned specks begin to form at the bottom of the pan. Smell the butter; it should have a nutty aroma. Remove from heat and place on a cool surface to help stop the butter from cooking more and burning.
