Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe Time!
Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies adapted from Beantown Baker (and Alton Brown!)

So, while I was in the process of looking for a recipe to include cream cheese in (I’ve been totally too lazy to make a cheesecake or something similar, and I want to do a mason jar recipe for you but I’m a little short on cash and the ability to make a water bath right now!)   I stumbled across this blog, and when on to find this recipe.
I’m so particular about chocolate chip cookies, I mean… who isn’t? I saw Alton Brown’s name though, and decided that I’d give it a shot. Since he’s pretty cool.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour (make your last ¼ cup heaping**)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups light brown sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp milk (I used soy)
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks & 1 cup white chocolate chips
**So, the recipe on beantown baker calls for bread flour. I didn’t see that until I had already browned my butter – so I decided to risk it and go for all purpose since that’s what I had. I looked up the difference, and the big thing is that bread flour is supposed to rise more, so to compensate I put in a big heaping

The How-To:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375° F
  2. Melt your butter until it’s browned in a pot on low-medium heat and set aside to cool for a sec.
  3. Whisk the flour, salt and baking soda in a small bowl, set aside.
  4. Pour the butter in a large bowl with the sugars and mix until combined (I used my hand mixer for the rest of this recipe).
  5. Add the rest of the wet ingredients (milk, vanilla and eggs)
  6. Slowly add your flour mixture, and then your goodies! 🙂
  7. Pop into the fridge for at least a half hour before baking, and keep in the fridge inbetween your batches baking! But of course, bake these for 9-12 minutes, take out and cool and share with coworkers!

These pictures aren’t my best (I’m sure you’ll note the lame instagram filter), but this recipe was really something I had had had had to share with you guys. Don’t hate me, love this cookie recipe! <3

Until next recipe – which is soon!
