The trickiest part of this brown butter snickerdoodles recipe is browning the butter. Be careful not to burn yourself while whisking—the butter gets extremely hot. Once you've prepared the dough, you can store it in an air-tight container and freeze for up to one month. Be sure to roll the dough balls in the cinnamon-sugar mixture before freezing. When you're ready to bake the dough from frozen, add two minutes of bake time to ensure they're fully cooked. If you're preparing a big batch of cookies, you can store the rest of the dough balls in the fridge while one set bakes. Whether you're looking for this season's bake sale winner or just craving a new late-night snack option, these snickerdoodles are sure to become a go-to recipe.
