{Brown Butter Biscuits}

Ever since I made brown butter banana bars I've been a bit in love with the whole brown butter thing.  These biscuits are a crunchy take on that nutty taste, I love them, especially dipped in my coffee! classy.  This is the third batch I've made in a week, this time I reduced the sugar, yes me, I did that ! And the bikkies are better for it. 

These suckers are going into lunchbox's left right and centre and are still the most requested after school snack, happily munched on with a big glass of milk sucked through a couple of curly straws.

Another excellent thing about these biscuits is that they are made in one pot, the pot you brown the butter in, I am a bit lazy like that and not a big fan of washing up. Bloody genius if you ask me. 

... the biscuits
125g butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or extract)
1 1/2 cups self raising flour

Preheat oven to 180.  First of all put the butter into a big saucepan, one that's going to fit the rest of the ingredients.  Melt and then gently simmer the butter until it changes colour to a light golden brown, like the colour of a lion and smells nutty, take it off the heat (it takes around 6 minutes).

Let the butter cool slightly, then add the rest of the ingredients and stir, roll into balls the size of a small walnut, press down slightly on a lined baking tray and bake for 13 - 15 minutes.  Cool on a rack. 


  1. I love how easy this recipe sounds and how the ingredients are very accessible. Looks like a quick recipe that you could whip up after school too right?

  2. Hello new kids' lunchbox biscuit. Sounds divine! I'm making these pronto! xx

  3. Brown butter anything is a BIG hit in my books. The kids will enjoy making and devouring these no doubt :)

  4. Awesome, Paula - this is my kind of baking!! I love that these are made in the one pot, and that a few simple ingredients that are always in the pantry are transformed into something so delectable. I'm definitely going to make a batch of these this week.

  5. These look delicious - I haven't tried brown butter yet. It's on my to do list now, though!
