Boy do I ever have a spectacular, heavenly, delightfully wonderful recipe for you all today. These Brown Butter Sugar Cookies Bars have a deep, rich, almost caramel like flavor. They have an amazingly soft, chewy texture and are covered in an equally fabulous brown butter frosting. Mmmmmmmm. Yuh-hu-hummmmmmmmm. Seriously, they are such a wonderful treat. Everyone in my family over the age of 9 absolutely loved them. I will warn you that I think they may be designed for older taste buds.  My little twin boys were not impressed, which was not that big of a problem actually. More heavenly goodness for the rest of us!

Hope some of you get a chance to try them!

It will start to turn brown, get a bit frothy and have a nutty fragrance. Should only take about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.

5. Carefully press the batter into a 9×13 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the pan from the oven and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack.
