Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe @pinch

These are not your average chocolate chip cookies! If you are a team crisp cookie, this cookie recipe is for you. Browned butter gives them a nice nutty flavor. Browning the butter takes a little time but be patient. It is worth the time. This should be your go haveto recipe the next time you are in need of a chocolate fix. The browned butter gives it a nutty flavor and adds to the richness of these cookies. I learned that lemon juice helps to activate the baking soda!

  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on how large you\u2019ve rolled your balls (mine took 11 minutes).
