Try these delicious Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies for a change of pace. They're made with browned butter, mostly brown sugar, and mini chocolate chips. This is one of my top two favorite cookie recipes!
Recipe type: dessert
  • 2¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter PLUS 1 EXTRA TBSP
  • 1¼ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-11 ounce bag mini chocolate chips
  1. Melt all butter in a skillet or saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Whisk constantly until the butter begins to brown. This takes several minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat once brown bits appear and and it has a nutty, delicious smell to it.
  4. Pour into mixer bowl. Let cool a few minutes.
  5. Beat the butter and sugars together until well combined.
  6. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix until combined.
  7. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  8. Let the mixture completely cool before adding the chocolate chips or the chips will melt.
  9. Fold in all of the chocolate chips with a spatula.
  10. Chill dough overnight in the fridge (or a few hours in the freezer).
  11. If dough is hard once chilled, place out to thaw for 20-30 minutes or until you can work with it.
  12. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  13. Place scoops (about 2 tablespoons) of cookie dough spaced apart on the sheet.
  14. Bake 11-13 minutes. Cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  15. Enjoy them while warm!
