Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies  side shot

Although I’m sharing a recipe for Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, yet I want to say something that may make you think “What’s wrong with her today?” but I’ll say it anyway. I feel that all chocolate chip cookies tastes almost the same! The texture and size might change but the taste, not really.

Before you judge me, I want to say that I love chocolate chip cookies, I do! However, I also have tried many recipes, and bought many chocolate chip cookies form the stores, and I can’t see much difference in taste.

Browning the butter did bring some difference in taste, the browned butter have added a very light nutty flavor, which I loved.

These Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, are crunchy at the edges, but chewy in the middle. If you want the cookies to be chewier, bake them for 9 minutes, otherwise follow the recipe for crispy edges.
