Baker's Dozen: A Batch of Sweet Brown Butter Links!

Bread and Butter
Gourmet may be on its way out, but it's certainly leaving a legacy of deliciousness. And in the most recent issue, their feature on brown butter (most notably how it makes cake more delicious) sure made a lasting impression. Here's a collection of links to tempt palates and feed the hunger for sweet knowledge about brown butter:

First things first: an explanation of what brown butter is and how to make it.

Of course, the aforementioned delectable-looking brown butter pound cake from Gourmet.

Brown Butter Cookie Co. specializes in Brown Butter Sea Salt Cookies.

Oh, and if you wanted your own brown butter cookie recipe, Gourmet also has you covered. (RIP Gourmet!)

For the sophisticate, how about a hazelnut brown butter cake, via Smitten Kitchen?

And for more pinkies-out deliciousness, a caramelized apple tart in a browned butter custard, via RecipeGirl.

Cool off with brown butter ice cream, via Chez Pim.

Experience delicious overload with Browned butter scotch pie, via Desert Candy.

Dress up a homey favorite with Brown butter rice krispie treats.

Enjoy a rich and decadent confection with brown butter fudge.

Sophisticated flavor, fun presentation: brown butter blondie pops, via Peanut Butter and Julie

Brown butter icing: just one more reason to love Martha.

Brown butter bacon chocolate chip cookies: sweet (and salty) perfection!

Clearly I haven't read this issue yet... will have to dig it up and find this feature. My fave recipe on my site w/ brown butter (because I have a bit of an addiction to trying out brown butter creations) is Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. Loved those. Will have to check out the others you mention here!!

Super links! I hadn't seen most of those recipes. In fact, haven't seen this issue of Gourmet yet. You're right- we're all going to miss that magazine.

I love browning butter for that extra delish flavor. The divine Ms. M (that would be Martha) also has an incredible Butterscotch Cake recipe that uses browned butter. I've made it twice now to rave reviews: http://soap-queen.blogspot.com/2009/01/butterscotch-butterscotch-cake.html
