Brown Butter & Coffee Snickerdoodles

By: Crystal - Baldwin, WI - 2015 Recipe Contest

Brown butter has a warm nutty flavor that goes great with coffee and cinnamon! These cookies have become a household favorite that I will make over and over again!

This is a Door County Coffee Fan recipe. It was not made in the kitchens of the Door County Coffee Café.

  6. Pour the mixture in the smaller bowl into the flour mixture and stir all the ingredients together until a cookie dough forms.
  7. Use a tablespoon to scoop out portions of dough and use your hands to roll the dough into a ball. Then roll the dough ball into the cinnamon-coffee-sugar mixture. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  8. Place the sugared dough balls 2" apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 12-16 minutes, or until just starting to turn golden brown.
  9. Serve with your favorite cup of Door County Coffee!
