What is Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Brown butter chocolate chip cookies are a classic recipe that every cook should know how to make. The brown butter gives the cookies a distinct rich flavor and the chocolate chips are the perfect complement.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- In a small saucepan set over medium heat, melt the butter until it’s completely melted and bubbling around the edges of the pan. Then continue to cook until you begin to see brown bits of milk solids forming on top of your liquid (this will take about 5 minutes). Don’t let the butter burn!
- Remove from heat and let cool slightly before adding it to a mixing bowl along with your sugars and vanilla extract; whisk together until well, combined with no lumps remaining from either ingredient (about 30 seconds). Add flour and fold into mixture using as few strokes as possible, just enough so that everything is evenly distributed throughout without any dry spots remaining visible when you stop stirring altogether, then stir in chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon or spatula; make sure they’re evenly distributed throughout without clumping up too much at any one time! You don’t want any big chunks either but if there are some large pieces left after stirring them all in together then that won’t hurt anything since they’ll be baked into cookies anyway!
- Using two spoons or an ice cream scoop dipped into cold water between each cookie scooped out onto parchment paper lined baking sheets where each one should be spaced apart just slightly from its neighbors’ edges so that air can circulate freely around them while baking (about 2 inches apart). Bake for 8 minutes then rotate pans 180 degrees before placing back in oven for another 5, 8 minutes depending on how crispy/chewy/soft etc. you’d like these cookies!
- These cookies are best when baked for about 12 minutes at 375° F.
- Add, ins and variations: You can add any of your favorite nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips or chopped caramel candies to these cookies before baking. I recommend using whatever you have on hand or that’s been languishing in the back of your cupboard (or freezer). A few ideas include walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts and raisins; semisweet chocolate chunks or mini marshmallows; pretzels or potato chips. You can also make these into sandwich cookies by putting a layer of white chocolate chip ice cream between two halves once they’re removed from the oven. Then just dust them with powdered sugar once they cool down slightly so that it sticks well but doesn’t melt into an unappetizing mess! It’s up to you how many times you want to eat them before serving…I won’t judge!
Pro Tip: If things aren’t going according to plan with these sweet treats then fear not because there is always room for improvement—especially when we’re talking about something as simple as cooking methods so don’t worry about wasting ingredients if something doesn’t work out right away because chances are there will be more opportunities later on down the road.
If you’re looking for a way to make your chocolate chip cookies stand out, then look no further. Brown butter can add an extra dimension of flavor and sweetness to your favorite cookie recipe, but it comes with some important caveats that you should be aware of before using it in your cooking. For example, brown butter has a shorter shelf life than regular butter due to its higher fat content; also, when used in baking recipes such as this one (which requires precise measurements), browning the butter properly will ensure that your cakes turn out just right every time!
