My new favorite cookie!
Creamy Inside, Crisp Outside, Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 stick unsalted butter, cold
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup dark brown sugar, tightly packed
3 tablespoons brown butter
1 3/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons white all-purpose flour
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chip cookies
Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F. Line several large baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a bowl, combine the cold unsalted butter with the white granulated sugar until smooth and creamy. This is best beaten with a stand mixer.
Add in the large egg, pure vanilla extract, salt and baking soda. Beat together well.
Mix together the packed dark brown sugar with the brown butter. Add this mixture into the batter and beat well, until smooth and combined.
Gently fold in the white all-purpose flour.
Stir in the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoon size balls into prepared baking sheets, about 3 inches apart from one another.
Bake, one sheet at a time, in preheated oven for 11 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool slightly before enjoying.
To make brown butter, place butter into a pot over medium high heat. Swirl the butter until melted, bubbly, foamy and amber in color. Immediately transfer to small bowl and add 1 teaspoon water. Place into the freeze for 15 minutes.
