My wife recently went on a girls trip to Morro Bay, where she visited the Brown Butter Cookie Company in Cayucos. When she came home, she asked me if I could try to recreate their Brown Butter Sea Salt cookie recipe. These delicious little shortbread cookies taste great with your morning coffee. I made an effort, and they came very close! I topped the shortbread with a pink Hawaiian sea salt for the perfect sweet-and-salty combination.

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Silpat liner or parchment paper

  3. Pour into a mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup light brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Mix it up, trying to get all the lumps out if possible.
  4. In another bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups flour with 1 teaspoon baking soda. Stir the flour and butter mixture together, mixing well.
  5. Form into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with a Silpat liner or parchment paper. Flatten slightly and sprinkle with crushed Hawaiian pink sea salt.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, or until slightly browned.
  7. Let cool completely before serving. These taste great with morning coffee! Enjoy!
  8. Note: This is not the real Brown Butter Cookie Company recipe, only my version of a similar brown butter shortbread cookie. Hope you enjoy it!
