Despite the plethora of baked goods available everywhere nowadays, the simple chocolate cookie has always been a family favorite.
I have previously experimented with myriad different chocolate chip cookie recipes.
I discovered this great new recipe, which is now my new go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe.
These delightful cookies are made with brown butter and only dark brown sugar for a vibrant, buttery, and caramelly flavor. By gently cooking the melted butter, it imparts a nutty and bold flavor resulting in brown butter.
Your family will love them just as much as my family does.
All Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and whisk it as it cooks.
- Remove from heat after a couple of minutes when the butter turns brown.
- Add brown sugar.
- Set aside for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Whisk in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.
- Add the dry ingredients.
- Stir in chocolate chips and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Portion dough with a scoop and place 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
- Bake 6 to 11 minutes until edges are golden brown.
- Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes.
- I prefer unsalted butter to salted butter when baking.
- I like to use dark brown sugar for a more caramelly flavor; however, light brown sugar can also be used.
- I prefer to use semisweet chocolate chips, but you can use any type. We enjoy having tons of chocolate chips in every bite, with Nestle and Ghirardelli being our favorite brands.
- Store the cookies in an airtight container for a maximum of 4 days at room temperature.
- To freeze the cookie dough, place it into an airtight container after making the dough balls. The dough can be frozen for up to three months. Thaw the dough in the fridge when ready to consume. Shape into cookies and bake.
Enjoy these yummy treats with milk or hot chocolate.
