Browned butter chocolate chip cookies

I have found the one smell that makes my husband melt. No, it’s not my perfume or anything sweet or romantic, it’s browned butter. Just throw some butter in a pan and cook it until it is almost burnt and I can go buy whatever I want. Yup, that’s my secret to getting what I want.

Last week required chocolate chip cookies. It was like I woke up one morning and decided I had to make them. So I threw some together one evening and satisfied my craving. I’m weird like that. These are a little sweeter than your back of the package cookie recipe but the hint of brown butter you get is so good! Another great thing about these cookies are you don’t need a stand mixer. So they are a very easy clean up.

Browned butter chocolate chip cookies
adapted from Dinner with Julie

3/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Put the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook until dark brown, almost to the point where it looks burnt, shaking the pan every once in a while so it cooks evenly.
While that’s cooking combine your brown sugar and regular sugar in a large bowl.
Pour the hot browned butter into the sugar mixture and stir to combine. Wait about 5 minutes for the mixture to cool so you don’t scramble your eggs.
Add the eggs and vanilla and stir to combine. Then, add the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir to combine.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Spoon onto cookie sheets and cook for 10-12 minutes or until they just turn golden brown. Cool and Enjoy!
