Brown Butter Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies


Brown Butter Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

Servings 3 dozens (depending on size)


  • Ingredients:
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks butter), softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels
  • sea salt for sprinkling on top


Preheat oven to 375° F.

    Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl; set aside.

      Add butter to a small saucepan; cook over medium heat until golden brown, bubbly and little brown bits on the bottom of pan (approximately 4-5 minutes). Allow butter to cool.

        Beat butter, both sugars and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture, making sure not to over mix.

        • Fold in chocolate chip morsels. Refrigerate cookie dough for 30 minutes; try not to skip this step! Chilling cookie dough will intensify flavor and color, plus, prevent dough from over spreading.

        Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

          Sprinkle with sea salt and enjoy!
