Brown Butter Snickerdoodle

Brown Butter Snickerdoodles: A Friendsgiving Party Favor

Brown butter snickerdoodles are the perfect cookies to give as party favors at your next Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving get together with their warm cinnamon flavor & chewy texture.

Friendsgiving Party Favor

Snickerdoodles were one those cookies that my mom would have in her homemade Christmas cookie assortment every year. They were delicious with their soft & chewy sugar cookie type texture, warm cinnamon flavor, and a little tang from the cream of tarter. It was one of the first cookies we would devour because they were so good!

Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

I decided to put a twist on the traditional snickerdoodle cookie and make a brown butter snickerdoodle for Friendsgiving & Thanksgiving. Doesn’t that sound delicious?! This cookie has all the same flavor components as the ones my mom used to make, however these cookies are decadent and rich with the caramelly, nutty flavor of the brown butter. I thought these warm, cinnamon, nutty flavored cookies would make the perfect Friendsgiving party favor or Thanksgiving dessert option!

Let’s bake some cookies and I’ll show you how to give them as Friendsgiving party favors too!

Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

Here are few reasons to love brown butter snickerdoodles and why they should be added to your cookie baking lineup.

  • Easy to Make: These cookies are extremely easy to make! No mixer is required, which means the kiddos can easily help with this.
  • Brown Butter: The star of this cookie, brown butter! It takes snickerdoodles to another level with a deep, nutty flavor that is rich and decadent.
  • No Chill Recipe: The snickerdoodle cookie dough does not need to be chilled before baking. Which means the cookies are ready for eating sooner!
  • Cinnamon Sugar: These cookies are rolled in cinnamon sugar giving them that classic snickerdoodle taste.

Ingredients for Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 1 ½ cups white granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs

Cinnamon Sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

How to Make Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

First, melt butter in a large pan over medium-low heat. Once the butter is melted, keep stirring until the milk solids separate and brown. The rest of the butter will turn a light brown in color (you will also smell the delicious nutty flavor).

Browned Butter

Pour the butter into a mixing bowl and let cool for at least 15 minutes before mixing cookie dough.

While the butter cools, mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In another small bowl, mix together the 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Set that aside to use later.

Once the butter has fully cooled, mix the browned butter and white sugar together using a rubber spatula in a large bowl. Then, whisk in the vanilla extract and the eggs into the butter mixture. Mix until well combined.

Snickerdoodle Wet Ingredients

Carefully fold the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Mix until well combined.

With a scoop, scoop out cookie dough and form into balls. My cookie dough balls were about 1/2″ in diameter.

Roll the cookies in the cinnamon sugar mixture you made earlier.

Place cookie dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Cookie Dough Balls

Bake cookies in a preheated 375 degree oven for 7 minutes on lower shelf, and 7 minutes on top shelf. Cookies should have lightly browned edges.

Immediately remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool on a cooling rack.

Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

Baking Tips

  • Butter: I prefer baking with salted butter. However, you can make this recipe with unsalted butter. Just make sure to add 1 teaspoon of salt to the ingredients.
  • Brown Butter: Allow the brown butter to fully cool before mixing cookie dough. Also, you can make this recipe without browning the butter. Just use 1 cup of butter instead.
  • Flour: When measuring flour, make sure to scoop and level. Do not scoop directly into the flour, this will compact the flour leading to the use of more flour than the recipe calls for.

Once the snickerdoodles are completely cooled, you can begin the fun part of assembling your Friendsgiving party favors!

What You will Need for the Party Favors

  • Cookie bags
  • Ribbon
  • Thank you tags (downloadable copy below)
  • Scissors
  • Brown butter snickerdoodle cookies
Friendsgiving Party Favor Supplies

How to Assemble Friendsgiving Party Favors

To start, you will need to decide how many cookies you will be adding to each favor and how many party favors you need based on the number of guests. (This snickerdoodle recipe yields about 36 cookies.)

Place the desired amount of cookies into each party favor bag. I added four cookies to our favors, for some reason it felt like the right amount!

Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

Tie a ribbon into a knot to seal the cookie bag. I used this small satin ribbon, but you can use any ribbon you like. Make sure to the tie the knot tightly and close to the cookie at the top of the bag. This will ensure there isn’t too much air in the bag which will keep the cookies fresher, longer.

Brown Butter Snickerdoodles Party Favor

After tying a tight knot, add the thank you tag. I created a cute “Thank you for being a sweet friend!” tag that is perfect for Friendsgiving! You can download or print the thank you tags I created here:

Friendsgiving Thank you Tag: Vertical

Friendsgiving Thank you Tag: Horizontal

Friendsgiving Gift Tags

Tie a bow with the ribbon to hold the thank you tag in place, trim the end of the ribbon, and your Friendsgiving party favor is complete!

Friendsgiving Party Favors

These are the cutest, coziest favors to gift your guests this Friendsgiving. Who doesn’t love delicious, fresh baked cookies?!

How to Store Brown Butter Snickerdoodles

If you do not plan on giving your snickerdoodle party favors out within a day or so, I recommend freezing them. This will keep the cookies fresher longer. Simply remove the cookie party favors from the freezer a few hours before your guests arrive to allow the cookies to defrost.

If you are not using these cookies as party favors, place the snickerdoodles in an airtight container and store in a cool dry place. Cookies will last up to 5 days.

To freeze, place cookies in an airtight container and freeze for up to 60 days. Allow cookies to thaw before enjoying.

Fall Scents in the Kitchen

Crock Pot Potpourri With Fall Scents

Crock pot potpourri is a simple way to add the warm, inviting scents of fall to your home.

Crock Pot Potpourri for Fall

Fill your home with the delicious scents of fall with potpourri made right in the crock pot. Fall potpourri with fresh fruit and warm spices is an inexpensive way to make your home feel cozy on even the coolest of autumn days.

Aromas of Fall

As I’ve been bringing out totes of fall décor, and styling our home for the upcoming season, I’ve had our crockpot simmering away with fall potpourri to infuse our home with the scents of fall while I decorate.

The smell of fall is one of my favorites. I love this potpourri because it brings that warm, cozy fall feeling to our home with fruity apples, oranges, and cranberries mixed with warm cinnamon & spicy cloves.

Fall Potpourri

Creating your own seasonal potpourri in the crock pot (or on the stovetop) is a great way to permeate your home with aromas you love and make you feel cozy. It’s a fantastic, less expensive alternative to candles with scents that are natural, organic, and not overpowering to the nose.

This crock pot potpourri is warm and comforting. Exactly how fall should feel!

Ingredients for Fall Crock Pot Potpourri

Ingredients for Fall Crock Pot Potpourri

How to Make Crock Pot Potpurri

How to Make Crock Pot Potpourri

Cut apple into slices and orange into wedges.

Fill crock pot or slow cooker about 3/4 of the way full with water.

Pour vanilla extract into water. Add apple slices and orange wedges. Then place cloves, cinnamon sticks, and cranberries on top.

Potpourri in Crock Pot

Turn the temperature to high leaving the lid off.

Check crock pot every hour or so to adjust the water level.

When done with potpourri for the day, place lid on pot and leave on counter. Potpourri will last about 3-4 days before it’s time to refresh with new ingredients.

Crock Pot Potpourri

Fall Crock Pot Potpourri Variations

Create your own fall crock pot potpourri by adding or substituting some or all of the ingredients. Other natural ingredients that will add the aroma of fall to your home:

  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Star anise
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Bay leaves
  • Nutmeg
  • Almond extract
  • Pears
  • Juniper berries
  • Apple cider
Fall Potpourri
Apples, Cinnamon, Cloves, & Cranberries

Shop Small Crock Pots

I love having both a large crock pot as well as a small crock pot in our kitchen. I use each crock pot many times throughout the year depending on what I am slow cooking. If you don’t have a small crock pot, here are a few favorites that you can shop online.

Crock Pot Fall Potpourri

Can I make potpourri on the stovetop?

You sure can!

I shared three potpourri ideas that I simmered on our stovetop over the summer. To make this fall potpourri on the stove, simply add about 8 cups of water to deep pan or Dutch oven. Place your potpourri ingredients in the water and bring to a slow boil. Turn down the heat and simmer on low, replacing water as needed. For more details on how to make stovetop potpourri along with a few recipes, check out this blog post.

Crock Pot Potpourri

Gifting Seasonal Potpourri

Seasonal potpourri makes a great gift for the holidays! Check out this potpourri gift idea I gave to friends and family last year for Christmas. It was so easy to make and everyone loved it.

Hmmm…maybe I’ll make it for Christmas gifts again this year…

Christmas Popcorn

Christmas Popcorn With White Chocolate & Sprinkles

Christmas popcorn is a simple, delicious treat made with popcorn, cake mix, white chocolate, sprinkles, and candy. A perfect treat for family movie night.

Popcorn With Sprinkles & Candies

Merry Christmas…in July! You must be thinking I’ve gone off the deep end sharing a Christmas themed blog post in July. A month smack dab in the middle of summer, not winter. And, you very well may be right. But before you pass judgement, have you heard of Christmas in July?!

If not, Christmas in July is simply an opportunity to embrace that cozy holiday feeling, without all the holiday stressors that come along with Christmas in December.

Christmas Popcorn

To celebrate Christmas in July I decided to turn down the a/c, throw on my favorite pair of flannel pajamas, grab a cozy blanket to cuddle on the couch, turn on a Hallmark Christmas movie, and gorge on Christmas popcorn! You can see me in action in my “How to Celebrate Christmas in July” reel found on Instagram.

Popcorn With Candy & Sprinkles

This Christmas popcorn is perfect for a family movie night on the couch now or during the holidays.

Popcorn in Boxes

Christmas popcorn is an easy no-bake snack that the kiddos can easily help with and tastes just like a Christmas sugar cookie. Everyone will love the sweet and salty blend of popcorn coated in vanilla cake mix, with the smooth drizzle of white chocolate, along with the crunchiness of the candy & sprinkles mixed in.

Christmas Popcorn

What You Need to Make Christmas Popcorn

  • Popped popcorn
  • White cake mix powder
  • White chocolate, melted
  • Christmas sprinkles
  • Chocolate candies
Popcorn on a Baking Sheet

How to Make Christmas Popcorn

In a very large mixing bowl, stir popcorn & cake mix together until well combined.

Christmas Popcorn

Place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 25 second intervals until melted and smooth (stirring between each one). Pour melted chocolate into popcorn bowl, reserving a small amount for topping.

Popcorn Snack

Add sprinkles and chocolate candies to popcorn bowl and mix until well combined.

Christmas Popcorn With White Chocolate

Spread popcorn mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Drizzle the remaining melted chocolate over the popcorn and top with additional sprinkles. Let stand for 30-45 minutes. Eat immediately or store in airtight containers.

Popcorn in Popcorn Boxes

Additional Tips

Instead of popping your own popcorn, use bagged kettle corn popcorn to save time!

Use any red, green, or white chocolate candies. I used milk chocolate M&M’s in this mixture, however mint M&M’s or Sixlets would be delicious as well.

Line your baking sheet with parchment paper to avoid the chocolate from sticking to the sheet. This also helps cleanup go a lot faster!

How to Make Christmas Popcorn

Other Christmas Popcorn Ideas

This Christmas popcorn is simple to make with the flavors of a sugar cookie. Feel free to change up this recipe by substituting or mixing in other ingredients!

  • Create a mint flavored Christmas popcorn with the addition of crushed candy canes. Wouldn’t that be delicious with a cup of hot cocoa?!
  • Mix in your favorite nuts to add crunch to the popcorn mixture.
  • Add red or green food coloring to your white chocolate for a little more Christmas color.
  • Use milk or dark chocolate along with the white chocolate to create zebra popcorn.
Holiday Treat

How Long Will Christmas Popcorn Last?

Christmas popcorn is best served immediately. However, the popcorn mixture will last about 1-2 weeks if stored in an airtight container.

Holiday Treat

I served our popcorn in these cute movie night popcorn boxes to which I added a curling ribbon handle for a fun little twist.

Movie Night Popcorn Boxes
Popcorn Box With Curling Ribbon

If gifting your popcorn, these vintage inspired tins filled with popcorn would be adorable to gift to a loved one, or a plastic food storage container with popcorn stored inside could easily be mailed. You could also fill a Christmas mug with popcorn, wrap with cellophane, and add a bow for a last minute gift.

Delicious Snack

I hope this Christmas popcorn inspired you to try something new and to just maybe, maybe bring a little bit of the Christmas spirit to July!

DIY Mother’s Day Gift & Tablescape

Mother’s Day is less than a week away, are you ready?! If not, I’ve got another Mother’s Day gift idea for you! Last week, I shared gift ideas from some of my favorite retailers, you can read that post here. However, this week I wanted to share with you an inexpensive and easy gift that little ones can help with and one that mom will love.

Fresh herbs planted in aged terracotta pots. Each Mother’s Day, I ask Dave for herbs to plant in our planter we have on our back deck right next to the kitchen. I love having fresh herbs all summer long that I can easily access while I’m cooking. I use them in everything from salad dressings to sauces to marinades for meat & poultry, and even ice cream! (You can find my rosemary ice cream recipe, here.) One of the other great things about growing herbs is the delicious scents that eminent from them and the wonderful aromas that fill our deck and kitchen!

Instead of gifting mom an herb in the ugly plastic container that comes from the store with the ugly plastic plant label…let’s make it special by transplanting the herbs into beautiful aged terracotta pots (that we aged ourselves!) and adding super cute wooden plant labels! I had aged terracotta pots a few weeks ago for our front porch (read that post here) and had such a fun time doing that, I thought I would age more pots for these herb gifts. Some other fun ideas to dress up a basic terracotta pots besides aging them would be painting with acrylic paints or decoupaging (littles would have so much fun helping with any of these techniques!). Aging terracotta is super easy technique I found on Liz Marie Blog.

Mother's Day Gift Idea
Herbs
Herb Labels

To age terracotta pots you only need a few things; organic garden lime, water, clay pots (for the herbs I bought 4″ pots), matching clay saucer, bowl for mixing, and a paint brush. To make the aging mixture, add 1 cup of lime to bowl and mix with 1 cup of water (ratio is 1:1). Stir until lime fully dissolves in water, mixture will resemble mud. To apply the lime mixture, use a paint brush to brush the mixture onto the clay pots & saucers, making sure to coat pot evenly. Allow to fully dry and if desired, apply 1 to 2 more coats (I applied 3 coats to the pots pictured here). That’s it!

Once your clay pots are fully dried from the aging process (should only take an hour or so) you can transplant your herbs into their new pots. You can use any herbs that you or mom like for this DIY. I purchased rosemary, thyme, oregano, sage, chives, and mint. Note: You may need a handful or two of potting soil when transplanting (we like to use Miracle-Gro Potting Soil). Once you’ve transplanted your herbs, water in, and add the wooden herb tag. You can purchase the tags I used here (I also like these), or you can also make your own with popsicle sticks!

Mother's Day Gift Idea
Herbs in Terracotta Pots
Herbs

Your DIY herb pots are now ready for gifting to mom, how easy was that! Let’s not stop there though…

I took the herb pots and made a tablescape with them! If you’re hosting a Mother’s Day breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner this would be the perfect tablescape to display your potted herb gifts and then have mom take the centerpiece when done!

Mother's Day Tablescape
Herb Centerpiece

For this tablescape, I started by adding a runner to the center of the table. Then, I centered two of the herb pots in the middle of the table and the runner. I added three mason jars on either side of the herb pots using a large, medium, and small mason jars on either side of the centered herb pots with a votive candle inside each mason jar. I then added another two herb pots on either end of the table (other side of mason jars) to complete the center of our tablescape.

Mother's Day Table
Place Setting
Candles in Mason Jars

I kept the place settings simple for this tablescape with white plates, clear drinking glasses, and gold utensils. I used a napkin that matched the table runner which I then tied with a simple twine bow and inserted an extra wooden plant tag into each napkin.

Light the candles and your table is ready to celebrate mom this Mother’s Day!

Flowers & Candles

Candles are one my favorite gifts to give and also receive. It’s such a great gift to give to someone to freshen and cozy up their home any time of the year. Mother’s Day is a great time to give mom a new candle with scents of spring & summer. The scent of the candles burned in our home change with the seasons. I love burning flowery and fruity candles in the spring and summer. Some of my favorite scents this time of year are lemon, peach, lavender, and the classic, vanilla. One of my favorite candle companies is Antique Candle Co. Their candle scents are beyond delicious, packaged in adorable mason jars, and the best part…the candles are produced in Indiana with American natural soy wax & 100% lead free cotton wicks! You can rest assure that you are giving mom a quality candle without toxic chemicals and harmful ingredients. Not sure what scent to grab mom for Mother’s Day? Here are a few of my favorite scented candles; Momma’s Kitchen, Sweet Lemon, Lavender Vanilla, and Georgia Peach. If those scents don’t sound like one mom would like, check out the other scented candles from Antique Candle Co., here.
