Brown Butter Muscovado Snickerdoodles I dreamt about this cookie for weeks. It plagued my every waking minute. Ever since I made those gluten-free chocolate chip cookies that were unbelievably delicious. We couldn’t stop eating them and no one seemed to care or notice that they were gluten free. I decided those cookies were so exquisite because they were laced with brown butter.…
