To brown the butter simply melt it over medium heat stirring it fairly often until it turns a nice deep golden brown. You will see brown bits at the bottom of the pan. That’s a good thing – you want this to happen!

Let the butter cool for about 5 minutes, then beat it with your sugars, egg and vanilla.

Let me tell you a little secret…the best part about adding the brown butter and chocolate chunks is they add something special to the cookie that you can’t quite put your finger on, and it’s that something special that keeps you coming back for more!

Can a chocolate chip cookie be made any better? For pumpkin friends, the answer is a yes and is as simple as browning some butter and stirring some pumpkin pudding mix into the dough. So yummy!

Although my post just the other day was also for a pumpkin cookie, this pumpkin cookie is a whole DIFFERENT kind of pumpkin cookie!

If you have never used brown butter in your baking, I strongly urge you to do so! The almost nutty flavor that comes from brown butter is SO delightful and SO scrumptious!

Of course there’s also the instant pumpkin pudding mix that imparts a wonderful, yet sort-of subtle pumpkin flavor. I know not everyone loves a heavy pumpkin flavor. Please try these cookies, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

So, back to what I said, this pumpkin cookie is a whole different kind of pumpkin cookie, and I truly hope you enjoy it!
