Brown Butter Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are amazing tasting!
Brown butter is indescribably good.
Your going to have trouble keeping yourself
from licking the batter from the mixing bowl.
Honestly, this is a good oatmeal cookie!
They don't spread out much while baking
creating a thicker and firmer cookie.

1 stick (1/2 cup) burnt butter.
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups oatmeal, (about) 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
also salt for sprinkling

Cut butter into 1" pieces and place in a
saucepan over medium high heat to melt.
Stir with a whisk until it turns amber brown
then remove browned butter to a measuring cup.
In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda
ground cinnamon and salt, set aside.
In a mixing bowl cream together butter with
brown and white sugars very well the add in
the egg, vanilla, and then the flour mixture.
Mix just to combine then add in enough oatmeal
to make a batter that will form into a ball.
Use yor hands to form 24 walnut sized balls.
Place balls on a parchment lined baking sheet
and bake for about 10 minutes or until the bottom
of the cookies just turn brown. Remove from oven
and hit the tops with a sprinkle of table salt.
