Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Is there anything better than Browned Butter? That nutty, savory, rich flavor makes me want to turn every plain old regular butter recipe into a browned butter recipe.

Ingredients for 2 dozen cookies:

1/2 C. Butter

1/2 C. Sugar

1/4C. Brown Sugar, packed

2 eggs (my eggs are fresh from the chicken to the kitchen and are slightly smaller than store bought)

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp. vanilla

2 C. all purpose flour

1 C. chocolate chips

Kosher Salt for sprinkling over dough

What to Do:

1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Brown butter on stove top, in heavy sauce pan, over medium heat for about 10 min or until browned. Careful not to burn it, stir frequently!

2. Allow butter to cool in a large mixing bowl, speed up the process by letting your cupkeiki stir it around. Then cream sugars with butter. Add eggs (or egg if you have a mega large one), vanilla, baking soda, salt, flour. Mix well, then add chocolate chips.

***at this point I came to the conclusion that the dough was too dry, and added a healthy splash (close to 2Tbs. milk to the mix which really helped.

3. Roll dough into golf ball sized balls, place about an inch or so apart, sprinkle tops with kosher salt and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

4. Enjoy with milk!
