Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, the best cookies I have ever made!
Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the best chocolate chip cookie I have ever made. So by extension, they are also the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever eaten! Plus there is a convenient bonus to these cookies, you don't have to wait for the butter to come to room temperature before you start mixing everything together. Which makes this a great spur of the moment treat.

Almost like instant gratification, in chocolate chip cookie form. But hey, don't take my word for it, start browning some butter.....

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
adapted from: How Does She ?
350-degree oven

1/2 c butter

1/4 c butter - cut into 4 slices
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar

1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 T vanilla

2 c flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda

1 1/2 - 2 c chocolate chips
1 c pecan pieces or walnut pieces

Place the 1/2 c butter (1 cube) into a small flat pan, melt over medium-low heat, then carefully let butter brown to a golden brown. Set aside to cool slightly.

Place the 4 slices of butter in the bottom of the mixer bowl, add the brown sugar and sugar, add cooled butter and mix until creamy.

Next add the whole egg, the yolk, and vanilla, beating well.

Add flour, soda, and salt, mix well. The mixture will be smooth and creamy. Quickly mix in chips and pecan pieces.

Using a large cookie scoop (2 T size) scoop dough onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes. Edges will be golden, do not over bake.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
