I’ve invited a host of moms, bloggers, bakers, and otherwise interesting people to share their “secret ingredients” for success. I’m thrilled to introduce today’s post from Emily Hobbs, baker, finalist in Food Network’s Ultimate Recipe Showdown, not to mention a finalist in a Mrs. Fields recipe contest and creator of Sugar Plum blog where she posts delicious original recipes for you to enjoy!
My secret ingredient I use in baking is browned butter. I cook butter in a saucepan over medium heat, whisking frequently, until it foams and turns light golden brown (about 2-3 minutes). The browned butter adds a nutty flavor to cookies!
