  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter (140 grams)
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar (50 grams)
  • ¾ cup packed light or dark brown sugar (160 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour (210 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Coarse salt , for sprinkling (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In a small saucepan set over medium heat, melt the butter. Continue to cook the butter until it turns golden brown, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
  • Pour browned butter into a large bowl and add the sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. Stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Add the egg and egg yolk, stirring for 30 seconds after each. Let batter rest for about 5 minutes, then stir vigorously for about 30 second. Batter should lighten in texture and color.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the cookie batter all at once and stir until no streaks of flour remain.
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto the prepared sheet pan. Bake until cookies turn golden around the edges but centers aren't completely set, about 9-11 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
