Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies
These cookies are amazing. They really, really are. They’re thick and chewy with lots of flavor. They’re made with brown butter because I kept hearing people rave about it and I wanted to try it. I don’t know if it’s the brown butter that makes their flavor so good, but it might be 🙂 These cookies also have two kinds of chocolate chips (dark and milk) because I think that combination is spectacular, and they also have walnuts because walnut taste really good in cookies. Please bake these, you’ll be seriously missing out if you don’t.
1 cup butter, browned
1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375F and grease two cookie sheets.
Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until its color turns amber. When little flecks of brown appear take it off heat. Don’t cool before mixing with the sugar.
Beat the browned butter and sugars until well combined.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla.
In a separate bowl whisk together the dry ingredients, then slowly add, while mixing, to the wet batter.
Mix in chocolate chunks and walnuts. It’s okay if some of the chocolate chips start to melt.
Roll into balls about 2 tablespoons big and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Bake for 9-11 minutes.
