A crispy sugar cookie topped with cinnamon and sugar and filled with rich brown butter. A delicious cookie brittle perfect for gifts and snacks! Tastes just like snickerdoodle cookies!
My two year old knows Costco. I consider "knowing Costco" where you can find all the samples. It's like a game for her. Suddenly you'll be walking down an aisle and she shouts out, "I found un!" She'll point to the direction we need to head to...stat. Other times, she surprises me. "Mom, dares un! I smwell it." If I don't head in the right direction, she will practically throw herself out of the cart while dramatically using arm gestures to show me exactly where I need to be heading.
The Costco ladies smile and give her another sample. By the time we get out of the store she's usually had the equivalent of lunch and dinner and my arms are sore from trying to keep her in the cart with one hand while precariously lifting two gallons of milk into the cart with the other. And don't even get me started on if there isn't a sample available. Oh, we wait or come back.
One thing I love about Costco are the unique products they sell. One day we ran across a rather large bag (because is ANYTHING normal sized at Costco?) of cookie brittle. It looked delicious but I rarely buy anything on a whim at Costco. Simply because one of two things happens: I buy it and find I like/love it and eat the whole bag then causing feelings of guilt and remorse or I buy it, end up not liking it and end up hating that I spent money on something I didn't like which also causes feelings of guilt and remorse.
When I saw this cookie brittle I knew I could try it at home before I bought a bag. And I'm glad that I did. It is delicious!
