    Stir cookie mix, water and egg into browned butter with spoon until soft dough forms. Shape dough into 36 (1 1/4-inch) balls. In small bowl, mix sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Roll balls in sugar-spice mixture. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly. Discard any remaining sugar-spice mixture after rolling balls.

    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are set. Cool 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Store covered in airtight container.

  • Beurre noisette is the French term for “browned butter,” referring to butter that becomes light hazelnut in color during cooking. The wonderful, unforgettable, one-of-kind flavor has no equal or substitution.
  • When browning butter, be sure to watch it carefully, as butter can brown and then burn quickly.
  • For even baking, make sure cookies are the same shape and size.
