Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I tried Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies for the first time about a month ago and have thought about them several times since then.  I decided to give it a try!  I used the Nestle Tollhouse recipe, but made a few minor adjustments.  First, I browned the butter and then added it to the brown and white sugar.  I also, increased the amount of brown sugar to 1 cup and decreased the white sugar to 1/2 cup.  I wanted to use dark brown sugar, but didn't have any, so I added a tsp of molasses as well.  I accidentally added 3 eggs instead of 2 so I decided to make a more cakey cookie and added an extra 3/4 c flour as well.  These cookies turned out DELICIOUS!  The outsides are crunchy and the middles are soft and cakey.  You can taste the brown butter, which is carmel-y and rich.  Next time I make these, I'll try it with only 1 egg and the regular amount of flour, but I'm not convinced I'll like them more than this batch.  Let me know what you think!

  1. Love cookies with browned butter! The butter smells all nutty and when you add it to the sugar it smells like toffee. Yum. Now I want some.
