Brown Butter Oatmeal M&M Cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup mini M&Ms

1-2 tablespoons milk, optional (if dough is crumbly)

Heat a small saucepan over medium heat and add butter. Whisking constantly, brown your butter by cooking until bubbly and small brown bits appear at the bottom of the pan, about 5-6 minutes (more details on how to brown butter here). Immediately remove from heat, pour into a heat-proof bowl, and allow to cool completely. It should not be warm to the touch. 

In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon; set aside.

Once butter has cooled, add to a large bowl. Whisk in sugar and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla, whisking until smooth. Slowly stir in dry ingredients. If dough is crumbly, add a tablespoon of milk at a time until dough begins to come together. Stir in mini M&Ms. 

Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes. 

Preheat oven to 375°F. Scoop dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet using an ice cream scoop, flatten slightly with a spatula, and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until bottoms and edges are golden. Let cool before serving.

Makes 12-15 big cookies.
