Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
This recipe had another mission: to use one of my brand new pans! Enter: browned butter.
BROWN BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Recipe created by me!
1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 T. vanilla
2 eggs + 1 yolk
2 3/4 c. flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. chocolate chips (can use dark chocolate to make them less sweet)
1. Place butter in a small saucepan (or skillet) and cook over medium heat until it turns an amber brown color. (There will be specks of darker brown fat in the mixture and it should cook down to about 3/4 c.) Pour into a separate container so the butter stops cooking.
2. Beat together butter, sugars, and vanilla for 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each.
3. Add dry ingredients.
4. Stir in chocolate chips.
