Cookie dough dip made with brown butter, cream cheese and lots of chocolate chips is a perfect super bowl treat! Sometimes I’m a really good wife. And sometimes, I make pure crack cookie dough dip when my husband’s on a diet. Sorry, Matt. But can you blame me? We were in the midst of a…

Brown Butter Chocolate Pecan Blondies

Posted on November 16, 2015

Rich brown butter blondies with toasted pecans and rich dark chocolate are a perfect Thanksgiving dessert! It was very difficult for me to set aside my own personal distaste for nuts in blondies and brownies and throw some crunchy toasted pecans into these blondies. But Thanksgiving is coming and it would be a shame to…

Chewy brown butter blondies bursting with fresh blueberries and dark chocolate chunks. I guess I’m on a blondie bender. Is that a thing? After this recipe, I made a monster batch of my famous KISD blondies for a friend, last week I ran into the kitchen to make this new recipe and then I actually…

Brown Butter Banana Cake with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on April 27, 2015

Three layers of brown butter banana cake slathered with amazing brown butter cream cheese icing. If there ever was a cake worthy of remaking for better photos it would be this one. I don’t typically like to make a huge cake (ahem, three layers) without an occasion, but this one was too good to  hold…

Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookie Cake

This is the best cookie cake that I’ve ever had.  It has a a chewy center, crispy edges and a wonderful brown butter flavor. I’m turning 30 this year.  And actually, August 21st isn’t that far away.  How I feel about the age is a story for another post, but what I want for dessert…

This brown butter pistachio cake is so moist and flavorful that no one will miss the buttercream!

This hearty but moist banana bread is healthy enough for breakfast while still being sweet enough to feel like a treat.

Salted Brown Butter M&M Cookies

Posted on December 12, 2012

I have so much I want to say and tell you about what is going on here at Keep It Sweet Desserts, but my thoughts are coming through in a pretty chaotic stream of consciousness so I’ll hold off until things calm down a bit! For now, though, I can say, I am SO happy…

Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins

Posted on February 28, 2012

So despite some unnecessarily stressful back and forth that has been going on in my life, I’m still set to share my news with you on Thursday.  Part of me is SO excited, but the rest of me is still nervous/terrified/anxious.  I know some of you are eager to know what my news is, but…

Heath Bar Blondies with Brown Butter Frosting

Posted on February 20, 2012

Did you know that brown butter smells like heaven? Yup, it pretty much does. But then again, so do fresh baked cookies, the combination of melted butter and chocolate, and homemade caramel. Matt referred to our apartment as a fudgery recently, and although I don’t actually make fudge, the meaning behind his comment was true. …
