Ingredients

How to make it

  • For cookies, use a mixer to whip together butter, shortening, brown sugar and egg until it is fluffy and light.
  • Gradually whip in the buttermilk.
  • By hand, stir in flour, baking soda and salt until well blended.
  • Cover and chill batter for 1 hour.
  • Lightly spray baking sheets with cooking spray.
  • Drop batter by spoonfuls onto baking sheets.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, just until bottoms of cookies begin to brown slightly.
  • Remove cookies from baking sheet and place on racks or waxed paper to cool.
  • When cookies are completely cooled, frost with browned butter frosting and return them to waxed paper to allow frosting to become firm.
  • Store cookies in air-tight container, with waxed paper between layers to prevent frosting from sticking to other cookies.
  • For frosting, place butter in a small saucepan (large enough to hold the 2 cups powdered sugar when it is added!).
  • Over medium heat, melt the butter.
  • While stirring constantly, continue to cook the butter until it stops bubbling and has turned a very light caramel color.
  • You must be very careful not to scorch or burn the butter – you just want a slight golden color to it.
  • Quickly remove the pan from the heat and add the powdered sugar and extract.
  • Stir in enough half-and-half to make the frosting spreadable.
  • This frosting will become firm as it sets, so you may need to add more half-and-half to it when you are ready to frost the cookies.
