Twin Cities Live - Coconut Browned Butter Cookies

Katy Gerdes at Angel Food Bakery has stepped up her cookie game in a major way. Their Coconut Browned Butter cookies are so good they sell out before many get a chance to savor these sweet treats! So, here Twin Cities Live is to save the day!  Katy is sharing her recipe with the world so you can enjoy these scrumptious treats in your own kitchen.  Even better, she has paired these cookies with one of our classic flavors - Praline Pecan ice cream!

Bridgeman's Praline Pecan Ice Cream

Coconut Brown Butters

INGREDIENTS:
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 lb butter
1/8 cup water (might need more)
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 cups dried, unsweetened coconut chips

DIRECTIONS:
Oven @ 325 F

BROWN BUTTER:
Melt butter over medium heat until it starts to turn golden brown and smell nutty, stirring frequently. Remove from heat, cool slightly and add water (should end up with 1 cup water/butter total per batch, keep brown bits in the liquid!). Chill until solid.

COOKIES:
Whisk dry together.
Slightly soften butter (if needed) and cream with sugars until very light and fluffy.
Add in eggs & vanilla and beat well.
Add dry to wet on low and mix until just combined (5-10 seconds).
Pulse in coconut.
Portion and chill completely.
Bake until lightly golden brown on edges, rotating at 5 minutes.
Tap pan on counter when pulled from oven to help cookies fall.
