Brown Butter Cookie Dough Dip


You read that right.

I can’t leave butter alone.  In fact, as I type this, though I feel like absolute crap, I would consider standing at the stove over a pan of Kerrygold, waiting on it to release that nutty, buttery aroma.

cookie-dough-dip-1You know, just to.

But I won’t.  I’ll keep typing, so that you, too, can have this really unusual dip.

It’s quick.  It’s easy.  It’s a stand around the party table, guarding it with a fork good.  It may even be an “oops, Honey, I forgot to sit out our Cookie Dough Dip” uttered 5 minutes after the guests are out the door.

Not that you’d do that.

What you choose to pair the dip with is up to you, but I found that strawberries were my favorite.  Graham crackers, apples, slobbery spoons – all acceptable options.  You choose.

I won’t judge.
