i love cookies! they are so easy and simple to make and everyone loves to eat them. especially the good old chocolate chip cookie.
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. and now these are my new favorite. they are so tender and delicious and i don’t think i could go back to any other chocolate chip cookie.
brown butter chocolate chip cookies
makes about 4 dozen cookies
3 sticks of butter, browned
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 bag chocolate chips
place the butter into a small saucepan and place over medium-high heat. let the butter simmer until it starts to turn a dark brown and has a nutty aroma to it. transfer to a bowl and let cool until solid, but at room temp before using.
preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. line a sheet pan with parchment paper. place the brown butter and the sugar into a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, and cream until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. scrape the sides of the bowl and add in the vanilla and eggs and mix until incorporated. place the flour, salt, and baking soda in another bowl and whisk together. gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. add in the chocolate chips. scoop the cookies out on the sheet pan and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
