Description

Adding browned butter to cookies gives them a delicious, warm nutty taste. When people take a bite of these cookies they say, “These are good…” and then the flavor of the butter seeps in, “Wait…these are really goooooood.” That’s the power of browned butter it turns “good” cookies, to “goooooood” cookies. The sprinkle of sea-salt opens up the flavors, helping achieve that perfect sweet-to-salty ratio everyone craves.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Butter
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2  Eggs
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2-½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Sea Salt For Optional Garnish

Preparation

1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly. Remove from heat immediately when the butter begins to turn brown (about 8 minutes). Let cool. See note below (*) for some butter browning tips.

2. Preheat oven to 375 F. In a large bowl using an electric or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Add the vanilla.

3. Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix until incorporated into the dough.

4. Scoop 1-inch size balls of dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet, leaving an inch or more between each. Flatten with a spatula, grind fresh sea salt over dough and bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are just beginning to brown. Cool on a wire rack, serve with a glass of large milk and enjoy!

* Browning butter tips: Put the butter in a large saucepan on medium heat. It will bubble, and get foamy. As it browns it will give off a delicious, distinctive nutty smell. The whole process takes about 8-9 minutes. Afterwards, place the saucepan in the fridge for an hour or two so the butter can solidify.
