How to Brown Butter: A Tutorial

So lately I’ve gotten many questions about browning butter. What is it? How do you make it? Is it really brown? So, I thought I would share.

I absolutely love using it together with brown sugar as it creates a sweet mixture that you will fall in love with. I also find it works well with oats, chocolate, and caramel. It’s a great (and EASY!) way to spice up any recipe, whether it be classic chocolate chip cookies or brownies. Category: Product #: Regular price:$ (Sale ends !) Available from: Condition: Good !

So with her little kitchenette, we decided to make some cookie layered turtle brownies. Here is are pictures of her Spelman dorm kitchen: Not much, eh? Now cooking at home and cooking in a college dorm are two separate worlds: Shopping on a college budget. First off, in the store when deciding between different brands, instead of getting the highest quality (and usually most expensive) ingredients like I do at home, my sister told me to “get the cheapest since we are on a college budget.” We also had to be mindful of the ingredients we used– so I did something I rarely do and used box mix for the brownies (she had boxes of them at her dorm already) […]
