Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
These chocolate chip cookies take it to the next level with brown butter used in them! They are chewy, with the right amount of crisp on the edges.
- 2 sticks butter, browned
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- chocolate chips/chunks
- To brown the butter, cut cold butter up into smaller chunks. Put into a small pot or saucepan, and heat it over medium heat. Constantly stir it with a whisk until it browns. Put it in a mason jar or a bowl and into the fridge to harden up. See the post for more details on how to brown butter!
- Take the brown butter and put it in the microwave. Heat it in 10 second intervals, just until you can get it out of the jar or bowl. Put it in your mixer (or use a hand mixer) and beat it until it is smooth, and it will lighten in color and become almost white.
- Add the brown sugar and sugar, and beat for a couple minutes until it becomes light and fluffy.
- Slowly add the egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and milk, and beat until it is well combined.
- Add the dry ingredients- flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, until combined. Add the chocolate chips last.
- Scoop the dough onto a tray, and place it in the fridge to chill for a couple of hours.
- Put the cookies on a tray to bake at 350 degrees F for 7-9 minutes.
