This week's Culinary SOS request comes from Halah Hassan in Pasadena: "I was wondering if you would be able to get the recipe for the irresistible brown butter cookie at the newly opened and darling Bittersweet Treats on Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena. This cookie is chewy, dense and delicious, and I would very much like to re-create it at home. " Browning butter will give any dish - from savory sauces to creamy icings and glazes - added depth with rich, nutty notes. These cookies are no exception.

"This recipe is kind of a mash-up between my mom and me. My mom makes dulce de leche every year, the real stuff, you cook it forever and reduce it down. It's a candy that's really popular in Mexico. And I just thought, what if I didn't cook it quite as long and then used that as a filling? So she had the dulce de leche and I had the cookie, and this is what we came up with. It's something we make every Christmas. I stand around and chat with my mom and my aunts, and we cook and stir and stir and stir.
