  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In small saucepan, heat butter over medium heat 4 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until deep nutty brown (watch carefully because butter burns easily). Immediately pour browned butter into large bowl; cool 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt until blended; set aside. Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar to cooled butter; beat with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes or until well blended. Add egg and vanilla; beat on low speed until combined. Add flour mixture; beat until soft crumbly dough forms. Press together to form ball; divide in half.
  • 3
    On lightly floured surface, or between 2 sheets waxed paper or cooking parchment paper, roll out each dough half to 1/8-inch thickness. Using 2-inch cookie cutters, cut out dough into desired shapes, gently pressing together and rerolling scraps as necessary. Onto ungreased cookie sheets, place cutouts about 1 1/2 inches apart. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  • 4
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely before storing in airtight container.

Expert Tips

  • Milk solids turn nutty brown on bottom of saucepan as butter browns. Watch carefully and stir with heat-resistant spatula to avoid burning. Although milk solids can be strained out if desired, if left in they add extra flavor and interesting appearance to cookies.
  • For a sparkly, crunchy top, sprinkle cutouts with sparkling sugar before baking.
