It's been awhile since I've had the energy to do any baking, it always involves so much cleaning - just something I haven't been able to think about - but I saw these "Brown Butter Cinnamon Crinkle Cookies" the other day over on Cookies and Cups and they looked too good to not to give them a try!
They don't take very long to do, I managed to do them even with Ella tugging on my sleeves - as she seems to do even more frequently these days.
They were actually quite tasty, a different sort of flavour and texture unlike your typical cookie.
So, here you go...

Brown Butter Cinnamon Crinkle Cookies
You will need:
10 tablespoons butter (roughly 142 grams)
2½ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup granulated sugar
¼ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup icing sugar
1. Place the butter in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the butter melts and begins to foam. Continue to cook, whisking (or swirling the pan) frequently until the butter becomes an amber color, this should take 2-3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool slightly.
2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
3. Add the granulated and brown sugar into the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Pour the cooled butter into the sugars and mix on medium speed to combine. Add in the eggs and vanilla, mixing just until smooth.
4. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Cover the mixing bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
5. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
6. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
7. Place the icing in a shallow bowl. Divide the chilled dough into 1- tablespoon sized balls. Roll each ball into the powdered sugar and place onto the prepared pan, about 2- inches apart.
8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are set.
9. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
These are so tasty and so worth the cleaning down!
