Original Brown Butter Refrigerator Cookies

1 review

These tasty, crispy cookies, from Ione Diekfuss of Muskego, Wisconsin, won Country Woman's first-ever recipe contest, back in December 1970. "I especially like them because they're quick and easy to prepare," she said. Our Test Kitchen made a batch recently and our staff agreed they're as tasty today as they were then, and are great for dunking in milk or coffee.
