I am always searching for the best chocolate chip cookie recipes and the best brownie recipes. In the past, I shared recipes for oatmeal tahini chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter chocolate chip cookies .
These rich buttery chocolate chip cookies have an entirely different flavor because of the brown butter. I urge you to go to Joy the Baker’s website and read the detailed explanation that she shares for the method that her dad uses to brown the butter and incorporate it in with the other ingredients.
The recipe is a fairly standard cookie recipe. The room temp butter and the cooled brown butter is combined and whipped with the white and brown sugar. Using both sugars results in a crisper and less dense chewy cookie.
After the butter and sugar mixture is light and fluffy, then the eggs and vanilla are added. Finally the dry ingredients are folded in with the chocolate chips.
Chocolate chip cookies are good any time and any way in my opinion. Thank you for sharing the Joy!
