Brown butter is a magical thing. It can turn a already perfectinto a phenomenal one. The butter gets more flavourful and smells like toasted nuts. The addition of milk powder really did the trick on these cookies too. It makes the caramel-y butter flavour even stronger and instantly made me fall in love. This chill time is important here. Without it, the melted butter will cause the cookies to bake up flat and crisp! We're going for slightly crisp edges with soft centres. Plus, the chill time will give the cookies more time to develop flavour.
