Am I reaching? Nah. In fact, I’m willing to bet my next meal that there isn’t a cookie lover out there who would turn down the Brown Butter Cookie Company’s Brown Butter Sea Salt Cookies. The hand-rolled, sugar-salt-butter combo is so simple, so small, so innocent-looking … and so ridiculously GOOD.
For birthdays, holidays and other special occasions (hint: Mothers Day is coming up!), I always hunt for these at my local gourmet goodie store, The Oaks Gourmet Market in Hollywood. A small bag is about $5 and makes a welcome gift (when it’s in stock), especially paired with a bottle of wine or box of tea. For those of you who are getting hitched soon, these also make impressive favors or mini dessert options. (Picture them piled onto little tiered serving trays — so cute!)
See if they are (or can be) stocked at your local gourmet market, or order a freshly baked batch online from the Brown Butter Cookie Company, located in Cayucos, Calif.
P.S. They also come in chocolate!
