Do you desire dangerously good cookies? Do you love chocolate chip cookies but want to make a more delicious, more sophisticated version? Brown the butter. Browned butter adds an incredible depth of nutty flavor to the chocolate chip cookie. It’s a marvelous flavor enhancement, and it takes very little time and no special skills.
The only thing to be wary of is eating all the cookie dough. It’s completely addictive- 100 times more potent than your average cookie dough. Fair warning.
Enjoy these warm from the oven or completely cool with a tall glass of milk. Enjoy!
2 sticks of butter
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt the butter, then bring to a boil. Once boiling whisk constantly until the butter froths and turns amber. Pour into a heat proof bowl to cool until room temp.
In another bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, salt, and vanilla. Once the butter is cool, whisk it in with the egg mixture until smooth.
In another bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda. Stir into the west mixture until fully combined. Fold in the chocolate.
Using a 3 tablespoon cookie scoop, dollop the dough on baking sheets 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes then allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets before removing to a rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
