One of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes is the one by Nestle. It is a classic after all and it is said that it is the original chocolate chip cookie.
We shouldn’t mess with something that has proven, right? But I have read online that browning butter in recipes make the end product even better. So I decided to brown the butter. The results were fantastic!!!
(Note – I halved the recipe because 4 to 5 dozen cookies are too much for us)
1/2 cup browned, melted butter, cooled
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/8 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
(To get 1/2 cup browned butter, start with 3/4 cup butter. Melt until it is browned. Pour into a glass liquid measuring cup with the lovely browned bits up to the 1/2 level. There may be some melted butter left depending on the butter used. Leave to cool before using.)
Beat the browned butter and sugar together. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Add the combined dry ingredients in 3 additions. Fold in chocolate chips.
Drop or scoop onto paper-lined cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for about 8 to 10 minutes.
yum yum yum!!!!!!!!!!!
