Brown Butter Cinnamon Cookies and Boozy Apple Cider

Holiday Cookie Recipe

This time of year, I’m always on the look out for a new holiday cookie recipe to add to my arsenal.  I find myself falling down Pinterest rabbit holes in search of a cookie recipe that is good, but has some room for improvement.  I especially wanted to find a cookie that paired well with Jill’s Boozy Apple Cider.  I saw a few variations of this delightful Brown Butter Cinnamon cookie online and decided to have a go at it myself.  I made some adjustments to the recipe to get the cookie to a place I love – tender with just a hint of crunch on the outer crust.  This tasty cookie held up beautifully next to the warm cider and made puzzle night at our house even more fun!  This is a great recipe for getting the kids involved too! My kids LOVED rolling the cookie balls in sugar before we popped them into the oven.  We have even made these cookies twice over the past week because they were so easy and SO tasty!  We hope these tasty holiday treats make it to your kitchen this season as well.

For the Cookies
Ingredients
  1. 12 tablespoons butter, sliced
  2. 2½ cups all purpose flour
  3. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  5. ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  6. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  7. 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  8. 2 eggs
  9. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  10. ½ cup powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar
Boozy Apple Cider
  1. 1 Gallon Apple Cider
  2. Peel of 1/2 and orange
  3. 2 cinnamon sticks
  4. Shot of Apple Whiskey for each mug
Topping
  1. Stick of butter, softened
  2. 2 tbsp brown sugar
  3. 1 tsp cinnamon
  4. Optional - drop or two of vanilla extract
For Cookies
  1. Place the butter in a saucepan or large frying pan. Cook over medium heat until the butter melts and begins to foam. Continue to cook, whisking occasionally until the butter becomes an amber color and has a nutty smell. 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 to overnight.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  6. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  7. Place the powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar 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.
For Cider
  1. Simmer the apple cider with orange peek and cinnamon sticks over medium low heat until warmed through.
  2. Add one shot of apple whiskey to each adults mug
  3. Ladle hot cider into mugs
  4. Top with a dollop of softened compound butter topping
  5. Enjoy with Brown Butter Cinnamon cookies - because that's the rule!
Notes
  1. This drink is JUST as tasty without the whiskey! My kids LOVED it and have asked for it again and again. Added bonus - it makes your house smell amazing.
