Coconut Brown Butters
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
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 cups dried, unsweetened coconut chips
Oven @ 325 F
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.
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.
