To make The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies you will need:

  • Brown Butter (A nutty game changer made by simmering unsalted butter for less than 4 min!)
  • Sugar (combination of light brown sugar and granulated)
  • Egg
  • Flour
  • **A little bit of heavy cream or whatever high fat milk you have on hand!
  • Cookie essentials: Vanilla Extract, baking soda, salt, +1 tbsp of heavy cream
  • Chocolate Chunks!! (My favourite part! I like to use a combination of semi-sweet and milk chocolate!)

Prepare yourself for a chewy, nutty, and decadent cookie of pure happiness!

Let’s make my favourite and indeed The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, start browning your butter! (Swirl melted butter every 30 seconds until butter begins to sizzle, become foamy, and emit a beautifully nutty aroma! You know the butter is almost ready when the mixture turns golden brown, occasionally makes popping sounds, and begins to have brown flaked milk solid pieces interspersed). Use a wooden spoon/spatula to stir butter, lifting browned butter bits from the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat, transfer to new container, and allow to cool slightly (simply to prevent an unintentional burn when adding piping hot butter to the sugar mixture).

While the butter is cooling, in a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. (This process aerates and sifts the dry ingredients!) Set aside.

Refrigerate prepared batter for at least 1h (this step allows all of the beautiful cookie flavours to combine and form a perfectly spread cookie!)

Preheat oven to 350F (325F if using convection bake).

Once dough is chilled, remove from fridge and place cookies onto baking sheet, spaced 2″ apart. Bake cookies at 350F for 12-14 min or until the edges are golden brown (mine were perfect after 13 min at 325F convection bake).

Notes

Sofia’s Tips:
  • Savour that warm, nutty brown butter aroma and don’t forget to scrape all those flavourful, brown, flaky butter bits into your batter!
  • To measure flour correctly: Use a spoon to scoop flour into your measuring cup! This ensures you don’t add too much flour to these cookies and end up with dry cookies
  • The cookies will continue to crack as they cool!
  • A sprinkle of salt on top of these cookies brings all of the flavours together and makes for the perfect cookie!! Don’t forget this step!
  • After scooping, these cookies can be put into a freezer safe bag and stored in the freezer for up to 6 months!! Perfect for your late night ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie snacking needs 🙂
