Step 1

Preheat oven to 350f.

Step 2

Heat butter in a saucepan until it foames & browns - swirl it often (5-8 minutes).

Step 3

Scrape the brown butter and toasty solids into a heatproof measuring cup. Set aside & let it cool.

Step 4

In a food processor mix together the crushed waffle cones, oats, flour, & salt and process until the mixture is finely ground. Add brown sugar, mix well.

Step 5

Whisk the egg yolk with 2 tablespoons water.

Step 6

With the motor running slowly drizzle the egg yolk into the crumb mixture.

Step 7

Then stream in the brown butter and process until the dough forms a ball around the blade.

Step 8

Portion out 26 slightly rounded balls (about 3/4 oz each).

Step 9

Roll the balls between your palms to smooth.

Step 10

Divide the balls to two parchment lined rimmed baking sheets, spacing them 3" apart.

Step 11

Cover with another piece of parchment and use the bottom of a glass to flatten each round into a 2 1/2" round.

Step 12

Bake the cookies rotating sheets to back & top to bottom halfway through until golden all over (12-15 minutes).

Step 13

Let cool on the baking sheets, use a thin metal spatula to loosen cookies from parchment.

Step 14

Turn half the cookies over so when you make the sandwich you have the top side of the cookie outside.
