The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies I Have Ever Made! Recipe rewind, because some things are too good to miss!

While it is still rainy in our little corner of the world, I know that summer is on it's way. When that happens you will undoubtedly be invited to many a gathering in backyards, parks, and community events. And guess what? You will be asked to bring a main dish, or a salad or my personal favorite, dessert! These cookies are what you will want to take. They are wonderful, easy to whip up and who does not love browned butter in their food? That's what I thought, everyone does. It is nutty and delicious and some might even say, a secret ingredient.....

This recipe for The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies, is a re-post. Let's revisit, shall we.....

I will admit it, I have struggled with recipes that have a leftover egg part. These delicious cookies are one of those recipes! What on earth do you do with it? I don't want to waste it by just dumping it in the trash.

However, since I have resolved my little leftover egg parts "issue" lets make cookies.

Not just any cookie mind you, the best chocolate chip cookie I have ever made. The additional bonus to these cookies, because you brown the butter, you don't have to wait for any ingredients to come to room temperature, that makes this a great spur of the moment treat. Almost like instant gratification, in chocolate chip cookie form.
