I love cookies! They are so easy and simple to make and everyone loves to eat them. Especially these brown butter chocolate chip cookies.
I wanted to have some cookies to munch on the other day, some good old chocolate chip cookies. But I wanted it to be a little different than the typical cookie you normally see. So I made the butter into browned butter to add in a little extra flavor to these brown butter chocolate chip cookies. And now they are my new favorite. They are so crispy and delicious and I don’t think I could go back to any other chocolate chip cookie.
Change it up!
Have some fun with these cookies. Brown butter goes well with all kinds of flavor profiles. Instead of chocolate chips, you can use butterscotch chips. Or you can get really creative and add in toffee pieces and some pecans, with a little bit of cinnamon to make a fun spiced cookie.
Now these cookies are also on the crisp side. If you want them to be a little less crisp, then take out 1/2 a cup of sugar. Don’t take out all of the sugar, just a little to get a more tender, softer cookie.
Products I recommend.
Above are some products that I personally use and recommend for this recipe and to have for everyday use. One of my favorite things that I have many of are the BlueQ oven mitts. They aren’t just really funny and a great statement piece for your kitchen, but they are great quality too!
