Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

As a food blogger I am always trying new things and different recipes. But somedays it is just nice to make a batch of fresh chocolate chip cookies. There is nothing better than a gooey chewy warm out of the oven chocolate chip cookie. And I think this may have just been the best out there.

This is the best caramel chocolate chip cookie dough that you have made! I had never thought of describing brown butter as a caramel type flavor. But it kind of is! It gives it a caramelly, nutty flavor that is to die for!

Serves: 24
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. coarse sea salt
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. plain yogurt (I used Greek yogurt)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I used jumbo)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the butter in pieces and place in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisking frequently allow the butter to brown. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside,
  3. In your mixer, combine sugars and brown butter. Blend until smooth. Add the egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and yogurt.
  4. Next, mix in the dry ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips until incorporated. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  5. On a non-stick baking sheet, or lined with parchment paper, scoop the dough out by tablespoons about 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake until golden brown in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
