Which plant-based butter have you found to be best for browning, say for brown-butter chocolate chip tahini cookies?

— Kathy Gold


So, you know, there are some desserts that call for brown butter and brown butter just, it's nutty, it adds a nice flavor, a nice extra layer of flavor to baked goods. So I would say, Kathy, that I think the biolife butter, which I'm finding really available lately, pretty easily available, that definitely Browns makes brown butter and also Kos is said to make brown butter as well. So when you make your brown butter, you let it cool and then you go ahead and use it. But, um, brown butter, chocolate chip tahini cookies, that sounds delicious.
