Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I first discovered the power of brown butter a few years ago I fell in love. The flavor of butter is ignited and spectacular.

I made these cookies last night. So as I am writing this post at 9am I feel the need to eat a cookie or five to really tell you how fabulous this brown butter chocolate chip cookie is.

A chewy, caramel, nutty, soft chocolate chip cookie is what this recipe makes. It is a go to recipe for me.

I personally LOVE milk chocolate and am not really fond of dark or semi-sweet so I use milk chocolate chips. But semi-sweet would be nice with the added sweetness of the brown butter.

Here are the ingredients needed, please ignore my catering size box of chocolate chips!

Continue cooking the butter until you get a nutty aroma. The scent is nutty yet caramel-y. I was cleaning out a cupboard in between swirling the butter and I could smell the butter was done.

I clumped my dough into 2 tbsp-ish mounds. I don’t roll the cookie dough into a ball, instead make it taller. This creates a thicker cookie! Score!
