Brown Butter M&M Cookies

Brown Butter M&M Cookies

On the day before we were to move Nick to college, I realized I had no homemade goodies to send along with him. Bad mama. Bad food blogger.  I opened up my pantry and saw a partial bag of mini-M&M’s and thought back to these Easter cookies made with white chocolate M&M’s. I love this base cookie with the slightly nutty flavor of browned butter and the touch of molasses from the dark brown sugar….mmmmm.  Don’t worry if the batter looks a little greasy…it’s just due to the melted butter. These Brown Butter M&M Cookies are a perfect treat for the lunch box or for a college student care package or for a Labor Day Picnic.
