So it’s clear that chocolate chip cookies are a favorite of mine. Biscoff/ Cookie Butter is also a favorite of mine. And I’ve just begun to like sea salt.
Everyday I crave a chocolate chip cookie. Okay I lied. I should have said “Everyday I crave MANY chocolate chip cookies”
Since making chocolate chip cookies is not instantaneous I have come up with a quick fix for those cravings. A chunk of milk chocolate dipped into Cookie Butter. Seriously AHMAZZZZING!! Try it some time, but please do not do what I did and buy a Pound Plus bar from Trader Joes and continue to have just one more chunk of chocolate. Because this chocolate bar is over a pound people.
When I made these cookies I made the cookie dough, rolled it into a ball and stuck my finger in the dough to create a hole. I then filled the hole with cookie butter and closed it up. Then sprinkled the dough with sea salt. Bake away. Side note my hand looks freakishly pink in this picture maybe its karma for always saying my skin was olive and my sisters was pink!
This recipe is easy, quick and delicious you will love it. Chocolate chip cookies stuffed with cookie butter and sprinkled with sea salt will be a taste bud pleaser! 🙂
Preheat oven to 325F and if using- line your baking sheet with a silpat liner.
Whisk the flour and baking soda together and set aside.To brown the butter cook 10 tbsp of butter over low to medium heat. Swirl it every so often. The process will take around 5 minutes.
Continue cooking the butter until you get a nutty aroma. The scent is nutty yet caramel-y.
Pour the brown butter into the bowl of an electric mixer or a heatproof bowl. Mix in the last 4 tablespoons of butter. Mix until completely dissolved in the brown butter.
Add in the brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt and vanilla. Add egg and egg yolk mix unitl fully combine about 30 seconds. Let sit for 3 minutes and mix for 30 seconds again. Repeat the process 2 more times.
Mix in the flour mixture until fully combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Scoop 2 tbsp or so of dough and roll it into a ball. Stick your finger in it to make a hole. Fill the hole with 1 tsp of cookie butter and fold the rest of the dough around the cookie butter.
Sprinkle your desired amount of sea salt on each cookie.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown but still look a bit under cooked.
