Brown Sugar Sandwich Cookies w Browned Butter/Nutella Cream Filling
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup butter
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, browned
1/2 cup nutella spread
1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400∘F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Beat the sugars and butter till creamy light. Add baking powder, salt and extract, beat till incorporated. Add eggs one at a time and blend well. Add flour and milk alternately beginning with flour. Batter will be thick but fluffy.
Scoop the batter onto parchment with Tablespoon cookie scoop for consistency. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes looking for spring in the top and light brown around edge. Set aside to cool completely.
To make the filling place 1/4 cup butter in a small stainless pot on medium high heat. Melt the butter and continue to simmer. The butter will sizzle and foam and once the foam has completely subsided and the butter is clear, remove from the heat. Cool. There will be brown bits at the bottom of the pan.
Pour the melted butter and scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pan into a mixing bowl. Add the Nutella, sugar and vanilla. Blend together till creamy and spreadable, adding milk if needed or more confectioner's sugar.
Spread the filling onto bottom of a cookie and then top with another cookie. They will be slightly sticky to the touch and should not be stacked on top of each other. Great to eat immediately.
