Brown Butter Pecan Cookies

Earlier this week, I blogged about being from New Orleans originally, and how I have an affinity for a Community Coffee, so when they reached out to see if I would be interested in partnering with them for some samples it was a no brainier! I shared that I would be doing something different with the coffee samples, trying some recipes from their website.  I shared the Southwestern Snack Mix, and today Ill be sharing the Brown Butter Pecan Cookies! These are sure to be on repeat with Fall decides to arrive in North Florida!

1 cup Unsalted butter

3⁄4 cup Confectioners’ sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla extract

2 cups All-purpose flour

1 tbsp. Community® House Blend coffee, ground

3 tbsps. Water, divided

3⁄4 tsp. Salt

24 Pecan halves

Optional Confectioners’ sugar as garnish

1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Cook until butter turns a medium-brown color and has a nutty aroma, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and pour into a bowl. Refrigerate until almost firm, about 1 hour,stirring occasionally.

2. Preheat oven to 300°.

3. In a large bowl, beat browned butter, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla with a mixer at medium speed until creamy.

Add flour, ground coffee, 2 tablespoons water and salt, beating until combined.
Add remaining 1 tablespoon of water, if needed. Roll dough into 24 balls. Place balls 1 inch apart on a large ungreased baking sheet. Place pecanson dough balls, pressing to adhere.

4. Bake until bottoms of cookies are lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack. Garnish with confectioners’ sugar, if desired.
