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!


INGREDIENTS 
 
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

DIRECTIONS
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.
