My first experience with brown butter was when I made a brown butter sage sauce for three cheese tortellini. Ever since I started making that sauce, I’ve wanted to try baking with brown butter. I’ve heard that it gives baked goods a great flavor. I’ve seen brown butter frosting, brown butter cookies, and brown butter brownies. I need to make 6 dozen goodies for this weekend so I thought this would be the perfect time to make a pan of brown butter chocolate chip cookie bars.
