Brown Butter Chocolate Brownie Cookies – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

There isn’t anything better than a super fudgy brown butter cookie.  These cookies are remarkably delightful and taste like you’re biting into a brownie, but with a little more buttery elegance.  The tops of these cookies crackle gently as they bake, while the interior stays chocolaty rich.  Brown butter poured over chocolate chips melted into a glossy syrup and dark cocoa powder are the major contributors to this obscene darkness, while a combination of light brown sugar and granulated sugar sweeten the indulgence.

Brown butter has a caramelized flavor that’s slight in taste, but if you really pay attention – it’s noticeable.  However, the focus here is on the chocolate – profound intense chocolate — that’s what I’m talking about.  These cookies are truly an amazing treat – I make no excuses.
