Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter

  • 1 cup of packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup of white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 ½ cups of all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Set the oven to 350°F (175°C). This ensures the oven is hot enough to bake the cookies perfectly.

  1. Brown the Butter:

  • In a medium saucepan, melt 1 cup of butter over medium heat. Continue to cook, stirring often, until the butter turns a golden brown color and smells nutty (about 5-7 minutes). Pour the browned butter into a large mixing bowl and let it cool slightly. Browning the butter gives the cookies a rich, nutty flavor.

  1. Mix the Sugars and Butter:

  • Add 1 cup of packed brown sugar and ½ cup of white sugar to the browned butter. Beat until creamy and well combined. This makes the cookies soft and flavorful.

  1. Add Vanilla and Eggs:

  • Mix in 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and 2 large eggs until everything is well blended. The eggs help the cookies stay together and the vanilla adds flavor.

  1. Combine the Dry Ingredients:

  • In another bowl, combine 2 ½ cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, ½ teaspoon of baking powder, and 1 teaspoon of salt. These ingredients help the cookies rise and stay soft.

  1. Mix Everything Together:

  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Stir until everything is well combined. This is the cookie dough!

  1. Add the Chocolate Chips:

  • Gently stir in 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips. These make the cookies extra delicious.

  1. Scoop the Dough:

  • Use a spoon or a cookie scoop to place small balls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Make sure to leave some space between each ball because the cookies will spread out as they bake.

  1. Bake the Cookies:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. The center might look a bit soft, but that's okay! They'll keep cooking a little even after you take them out.

  1. Cool the Cookies:

  • Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely. This helps them finish cooking and stay chewy.

Why These Steps are Important:

  • Browning the Butter: Gives the cookies a deep, rich flavor that's different from regular butter.

  • Mixing the Sugars: Creates a creamy base that makes the cookies chewy.

  • Baking Soda and Powder: Helps the cookies rise and become light and fluffy.

  • Cooling the Cookies: Ensures they finish cooking perfectly and stay together.

Enjoy your delicious brown butter chocolate chip cookies!
