How to make Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies from scratch?
- STEP 1: MAKE BROWN BUTTER
Make Browned Butter by heating butter in a pan. As the butter melts, whisk constantly. It'll start to bubble and slowly change color to light brown. That's the time to remove this off the heat. It's best advised to do this step in a stainless steel skillet or a light-colored skillet as that will help you know the color change instantly. After you've made the browned butter, cool it down to room temperature before using it.
- STEP 2: WHISK DRY INGREDIENTS
Whisk the dry ingredients - Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt in a bowl.
- STEP 3: MIX WET INGREDIENTS
Mix the wet ingredients - Browned Butter, Milk, Brown Sugar, and Granulated Sugar using a whisk or a stand mixer or handheld mixer just until it gets creamy.
- STEP 4: COMBINE WET AND DRY INGREDIENT
Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Just fold with a spatula. You do not have to use any mixer for this step.
- STEP 5: ADD CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Now, finally, add the Chocolate Chips. I use Unsweetened dark chocolate chips which I fold in with my cookie dough. There is no limit to the number of Chocolate chips. You can use as much as you want.
- CHILL THE DOUGH
After you've made the cookie dough, allow it to rest covered in the refrigerator for 1 hour or 30 minutes in the freezer. You can also store it overnight and use it the next day. This is extremely important and doing this will remove the excess moisture from the cookies and they will not flatten out in the oven.
- STEP 5: MAKE COOKIE DOUGH BALLS
Scoop just 1/4 cup size of the cookie dough ball and place them in the baking dish. Do not flatten them out.
- STEP 6: BAKE
Bake these Brown Butter Chocolate Chips Cookies for 11-12 minutes.
After the cookies get baked, you should allow them to stay in the same baking dish for 5-10 more minutes. They might look undone from the top, but just give it some time. It will harden up quickly from the cold air outside and will be perfect for each.
Drizzle some sea salt over the cookies and serve!
How to make Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies ahead of time?
You can make the cookie dough, just skip the milk. Keep it covered in the freezer. You can store this cookie dough for up to 3 months or refrigerate it for 2 weeks. Before reuse, thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then combine the milk, and then use it.
Tips to make the best Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
- If your cookie dough is too soft, add more flour.
- If your Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is too dry, add more milk.
