Expert Tips

*	If using 21-oz pouch Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix, use 1/2 cup
butter, 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water; shape into 42 balls. Makes 42 cookies.

*	Beurre noisette is the French term for “browned butter,” referring
to butter that becomes light hazelnut in color during cooking. The
wonderful, unforgettable, one-of-kind flavor has no equal or substitution. 
*	When browning butter, be sure to watch it carefully, as butter can
brown and then burn quickly. 
*	For even baking, make sure cookies are the same shape and size.
