Creamy Honey Dip:


  1. Place the butter in a pot over medium heat. Once melted, reduce the heat to low and allow the butter to just barely simmer. Cook until the milk solids that sink are golden brown, about 6 minutes. Set aside to cool until the butter is still liquid, but not hot.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Combine the brown butter, sugars and honey in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on low speed until combined and a homogenous mixture is formed, about 2 minutes. (The mixture will look grainy.) Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition, until incorporated. Add the vanilla.
  4. Whisk together the flour and baking soda in a small mixing bowl. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and beat just until incorporated, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.
  5. Using a small scooper, scoop 1 1/2-tablespoon mounds onto the prepared baking sheets, being sure to leave distance in between the cookies. Sprinkle with flakey salt.
  6. Bake until deeply golden brown, about 15 minutes. Allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheets for 3 minutes. Move to a cooling rack to cool completely. Dip cookies in Creamy Honey Dip, then top with sprinkles.
