My husband and I have been working on a new baking blog together — I make treats and write the posts; he takes the pictures — so these days I’ve been baking a lot

I scour baking websites, blogs and cookbooks for inspiration. The other day, I came across an article that listed brown butter as the top way to take your baking to the next level. I’d heard of using brown butter to make savory sauces extra-special. But I didn't realize that browning your butter is one tip almost universally agreed upon by the big-time bakers.

It works well with almost any recipe, though I like it best in sweets that benefit from a little nuttiness. You can use it melted, or let it cool and cream it with sugar for cookies, cakes or muffins. Yes, it’s an extra step. But it's easy and totally worth it.

This article was originally published in Seven Days' monthly parenting magazine, Kids VT.
