IMG_0185 While Gord and I {and kidlets} were away in California at a family reunion, I saw a sign on the side of the road for Brown Butter Cookies. Normal people would see a sign like this and say “oh that’s nice”. But I saw the sign and said “we MUST go there and eat all the cookies we can shove into our pie holes!” True story.

So, off we went! It was only about 20 minutes out of our way, which I think was 20 minutes well spent! Cayucos is a cute little town on the beach with fun candy, surf and antique shops.IMG_0234But, we made the trek for cookies, so that’s where we headed first. I love the look of their building! I’m a sucker for white trim.IMG_0183Cookies? Don’t mind if I do!IMG_0165When you walk into the Brown Butter Cookie Company store, you see shelves of cookies, granola and people behind the counters hand rolling all the cookies! I sort of wanted to just ask for cookie dough….but then thought they’d think I was strange {which I am} so I decided against it.IMG_0166Yummy granola!
IMG_0168And, the star of the show: Brown Butter Sea Salt Cookies!! There were so many cookies everywhere!IMG_0170And not just plain brown butter kinds. ALL SORTS! These were coconut lime brown butter cookies! How good does that sound?IMG_0178I was tempted to buy this huge bag of cookies, but my husband wanted to get more of a variety…IMG_0189 copySo we ended up getting this one with lots of different kinds so we could sample them all.IMG_0180Uh, Mom, can you PUH-LEASE hurry up?IMG_0191Here are all the cookies from that pack we got.IMG_0193Oatmeal Rasin! I like the oatmeal part…not so much the raisin part. IMG_0196Soft sugar cookies! Mmmm!IMG_0197And omg!! Soft Snickerdoodle cookies! Amazing!IMG_0201This chocolate chip cookie was super soft all the way through, so I loved that! IMG_0208This was a cocoa brown butter sea salt cookie which was our absolute favorite of the day.IMG_0207And then there were these!! The cookie that got these people famous, who their store is named after.IMG_0216These cookies are basically like a softer shortbread. Buttery, crumbly, tender and delish! I liked these little dudes a lot too.IMG_0217And, then I went back to eating the sugar cookie. Because it was one of my favorites too.

IMG_0227I asked her to pick her favorite cookie and she was stuck like this for a solid 30 seconds. LOL! IMG_0213Here’s my family post cookie binge. Don’t mind Brooke looking all sketchy! Haha…what a funny girl.

    OMG. I am kicking myself right at this moment. We drove the coastal highway 2 weeks ago from San Fran to San Diego and I SAW THE SIGN! It said “Home of Brown Butter Cookies”. It crossed my mind to stop, but no….we just kept on going. DARN!!! 🙂

    No way, my mother-in-law lives in Cayucos, cutest little town! We’re hoping to make it down there soon so we’ll have to check this place out.

    We went here a few weeks ago too! when we were on our west coast roadtrip from Vancouver to San Diego! I was half asleep but my husband saw the sign and knew I’d want to stop at the home of the brown butter cookie! They were soooo good, we wanted to buy hundreds! We bought the coconut lime variety which were amazing, and my husband fell in love with the honey kind!

    The ladies and I from our church’s womens’ ministry took a trip to Morro Bay and Cayucos just this past weekend…I knew about this place and made sure we stopped to check it out….all the ladies loved it and the cookies too! I think we all came out carrying little brown bags filled with cookies for us to share with our families!
