DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350-degrees.
  • Line two or three large baking sheets with nonstick baking liners or parchment.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and then continue cooking it just until the butter solids at the bottom of the pan turn deep golden brown (NOT black), 5-7 minutes- watch the butter carefully.
  • Immediately remove the pan from the heat and pour the butter into a small bowl, scraping the pan to get all the butter.
  • Let cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
  • Combine the chopped nuts, sugar, egg, vanilla, and salt in a medium bowl.
  • Stir until blended.
  • Slowly add the browned butter and continue stirring until blended.
  • Drop the batter by slightly heaping teaspoonfuls about 3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake until the cookies are golden brown, 6-8 minutes.
  • Let the cookies cool on the sheets on racks for 5 minutes before transferring them to racks to cool completely.
  • Repeat with remaining batter after sheets have cooled.
  • Store at room temp or freeze in an airtight container, separating the cookie layers with waxed paper.
