Here, the butter is specially prepared in order to give it even more flavor to impart to these sugar cookie bars.

The butter is prepared as a beurre noisette, or brown butter. That means the butter is carefully melted and then allowed to brown to a deep and rich golden color. Doing this step makes the butter much more concentrated, and richer and deeper in flavor. It also helps color whatever dish it is added in to, as you can see from the photos of these Brown Butter Sugar Cookie Bars displayed on the web site. Do not be intimidated by making brown butter. It has been used in French baking recipes for many, many years. It takes only a few minutes to do, and the only secret is to not rush the process or move away from the butter as it melts. Butter will burn more quickly than almost any other thing you could leave on your element.

These cookies have a rich and deep flavor that comes from the brown butter. They are also made from scratch, which means plenty of wholesome ingredients are part of the bars. The bars can get a frosting that is also great, but if you wanted to eat these bars without any frosting, they would still taste fantastic because of the specially prepared butter. This recipe is straightforward to follow, an the photos an instructions on the web site are clear and easy to follow. This could also be an opportunity for your aspiring baker to try his or her hand at making beurre noisette, too. Any way you make them, enjoy them soon!
