This recipe for brown butter chocolate chip cookies has been on my site for a few years and it is easily my most favorite. I bake these all the time. If I need a last minute treat for company, a yummy thank you gift, or if I have a hankering for something sweet, these cookies are the answer. I think it’s the only recipe I have committed to memory.
I baked a batch over the weekend and I thought I’d update the post, complete with new and improved pictures and weight measurements for the ingredients.
These cookies are ordinary and extraordinary all at the same time. Just my standard chocolate chip cookie recipe, but made with brown butter. It makes all the difference.
I have made one adjustment since this recipe was originally posted, however. I now sprinkle the cookie dough with coarse salt before putting them in the oven. It’s completely optional, but if you’re as big a fan of a sweet and salty combo as I am, you gotta give it a try.
