If the original recipe uses melted butter, then you are good to go once the butter has cooled. However, if the original recipe uses solid or cold butter, then you need to return it to that state.

You pour the butter into a bowl and let it return to room temperature for recipes that call for softened butter. Or you can refrigerate it if your recipe calls for cold butter.

Thank you so i can use the brown butter just let it return to a cooled almost solidified state and continue with the recipe?

Butter has water that will evaporate during the browning. Adjust that loss of liquid by adding 1 tablespoon of liquid for every 4 oz. stick of butter you are browning.
