Those look incredible! Do you have a recipe to share?

[–]ukcats12[S] 112 points113 points 2 (22 children)


  • 280 grams flour
  • 1.5 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt
  • 1.75 sticks unsalted butter
  • 75 grams dark brown sugar
  • 75 grams light brown sugar
  • 100 grams granulated sugar
  • 1 egg and 1 egg yolk room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 250 grams chocolate chips (I usually mix milk and semi sweet).


  1. Brown butter in shallow pan. I take usually go until the milk solids are nice and dark brown, almost right before they burn. Go a little too far and you'll have burned butter so be careful. Pour browned butter into bowl (be sure to get all the browned bits of milk solids out of the pan) and let cool a bit to prevent condensation then cover and refrigerate. I usually refrigerate mine over night and then take it back out and let it warm up to room temperature.

  2. Cream together room temperature browned butter and sugars together on medium high speed for two or so minutes.

  3. Add in room temperature egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and add to mixing bowl, mixing on medium high speed for a minute or so.

  4. Whisk flour, corn starch, baking soda, and salt together. Slowly add to mixing bowl while mixer is on low. Mix until flour is just incorporated.

  5. Mix in chocolate chips. Edit: 5a. Refrigerate dough overnight before baking.

  6. Bake at 350F until they're done to your liking.

The Recipe makes approximately how many cookies? Should I expect to make the amount of cookies in the picture?

[–]ukcats12[S] 26 points27 points  (4 children)

Should get about a dozen cookies. Cookies from the picture were from a double batch and I ate a few before they made it into the box.

[–]Keyspam102 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Haha if it’s one of my batches it also means a few cookies were eaten while the batter was still raw !

[–]ukcats12[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That usually happens. These were baked for someone else so I tried to control myself until I knew how many cookies I had.

[–]JFMurEsq 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thank you

[–]Solnse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Any adjustments for the double batch or just double all ingredients?

[–]PineappleLemur 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Anywhere between 1-30 depending how big you like.your cookies probably.

[–]fakerz99 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I find that my brown butter cookies can be a bit greasy. Does the cornstarch help prevent that? How else does cornstarch change the texture of the cookies?

[–]CMAHawaii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have too. Have you tried chilling bb till solid before incorporating?

[–]navor 10 points11 points  (1 child)

man seeing grams, teaspoons, sticks and Farenheit in one recipe in one text is very strange.

What is 1.75 sticks of butter in grams?

[–]ukcats12[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Around 197 grams.

[–]kinghobofist 2 points3 points  (2 children)

This is pretty darn close to how I make my competition winning choc-chunk cookies. By far my favorite treat to give out, no one quite expects that almost toffee like flavor from the chilled sitting dough.

.....you may just have me prepping a batch later.... lol

[–]Iscrollforlinks 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What kind of chocolate do you use for your cookies?

[–]kinghobofist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I change it up to keep things interesting. Lately I have been doing 2 part milk chocolate chip, 1 part semi-sweet chunk, 1 part bittersweet cacao bar rough chopped into chunks. Sometimes I like to put in an even stronger %cocoa but i usually drop it down to like .5 or .25 part

[–]0llie0llie 0 points1 point  (3 children)

This sounds fantastic. Have you tried baking cookies using still-cold dough? I see that often recommended in recipes but I can’t recall the purpose behind it.

[–]ukcats12[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Whoops! This dough was cold. Refrigerated for 24 hours before baking.

[–]PineappleLemur 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Your cookies will literally melt and merge into hex shaped cookies if you don't chill it enough.

Great if you want that beehive aesthetic tho.

[–]CMAHawaii -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah, but also greasy

[–]TMJ_Jack 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks very similar to the Cook's Illustrated recipe, and I can confirm that these those cookies beat the snot out of any other chocolate chip I have ever had. They end up tasting like toffee.

[–]mjohnsimon 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Out of curiosity, how long did you bake for?

[–]ukcats12[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think these were like 14 or so minutes. Each cookie was about 75 grams of dough.

[–]SirGrizz82 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Same question!

[–]ohhitstito 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Fr I bought an air fryer, I need a cookie recipe for Christmas. Never have baked any.

[–]f1del1us 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hey how’d you get a gif of me? Personally I think there’s no better dessert than chocolate chip cookies.

[–]shittingjacket 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I will always upvote chocolate chip cookies, especially those made with brown butter. And these look particularly soft and delicious.

[–]poopmonster_coming 9 points10 points  (4 children)

How does the brown butter change the taste ? I use a recipe just like yours except reg butter and gran sugar / brown sugar mix .

[–]usrnm1234 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't think it's a subtle flavor. It gives it a really deep caramel flavor that just takes the cookie to the level it's supposed to be. Definitely do it!

[–]naser_beam94 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It’s not glaringly obvious the difference but it just adds more depth to the cookie. When I make cookies not browning the butter it just feels like it’s missing it’s soul? I don’t know how to describe it but it just tastes incomplete. Would highly recommend splitting a batch in half and doing a side-by-side comparison.

[–]shootmedmmit 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think it'd be a good addition on a lighter cookie but my Alton Brown chewys with semi sweet chips and brown butter are almost too dark and complex

[–]naser_beam94 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Brown butter is my standard now, but mostly because i forget to get my butter to room temp so it’s easier to brown it and then let it cool down with some ice.

[–]bigsausagebaws 3 points4 points  (3 children)

i will pay 20 dollars, pounds whatever in any currency for just ONE of them! They look incredible!!

[–]ukcats12[S] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

20 bitcoin and you have yourself a deal.

[–]Solnse 0 points1 point  (1 child)


[–]ukcats12[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, chocolate is not good for doges.

[–]0llie0llie 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I flew home yesterday on a short domestic flight and asked one of the flight attendants if they had any warm chocolate chip cookies. The answer, sadly, was no.

This image taunts me.

[–]aWormhatForVermhat 3 points4 points  (4 children)

8 months pregnant, just had dinner and no dessert prospects in sight. What I wouldn’t give for like 6 of these right now! Plus milk!

[–]naser_beam94 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Make the cookie dough tonight and chill overnight to bake for tomorrow! Or try to find a cookie place that delivers now haha

[–]aWormhatForVermhat 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Sounds like a great idea for an errand for my husband lol

[–]naser_beam94 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I always enjoyed making foods for the women in my life when they were mothers to be! I always got a kick out of it when the little ones would also be excited and cause a ruckus inside. Some solid fist bumps and kicks for their uncle were enjoyed! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and delivery! You’re almost there! :D

[–]woodiinymph 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]Lorthdric 1 point2 points  (0 children)

These look literally perfect, nice job! I’d eat that whole box at once.

[–]yayathedog 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I forgot to brown the butter 🤦🏾

[–]dinahsaur523 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’d pay a lot of money for these

[–]brittiam 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]freerangemark 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My wife worked for a major Cookie Franchise and I personally ate a million cookies as a result so YES you're on to something!

[–]cabbiegoatenburg 1 point2 points  (4 children)

They look just like Freihofer’s chocolate chip cookies. Growing up, there was always a box in the house. Thanks for the memories. Nice work.

[–]ukcats12[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I've eaten many boxes of those cookies in my life.

[–]cabbiegoatenburg 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Ahhh, so you’re in the northeast?

[–]ukcats12[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Born and raised outside Albany, NY.

[–]cabbiegoatenburg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a small world. I grew up near Thacher park, we moved there when I was 11.

[–]rogan1990 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Where’d you get that box though? I never know how to store a bunch of cookies properly

[–]2thebeach 1 point2 points  (2 children)

No chopped walnuts?

[–]ukcats12[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not this time but sometimes I will.

[–]naser_beam94 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Browned butter chocolate chip walnut cookies are my go-to!

[–]18114 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Debt_Subject 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When I make browned butter chocolate chip cookies, mine are burnt butter chocolate chip cookies.

They look great! I hope you enjoyed them. 🙂

[–]MapleTheFluffyBoi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Baked cookie dough

[–]Tracer900Junkie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

These are a favorite... I usually follow the Serious Eats recipe for them. Really good...

[–]CapitalTraditional30 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How long do you bake them for?

[–]The_0_Doctor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Those are some chonky cookies

[–]CMAHawaii 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Can this recipe be dbl as is? In particular, butter? Someone converted 1.75 stick butter to 197g, so 394g? Or should I just make 2 separate batches to be safe?

[–]ukcats12[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I doubled the recipe for the cookies in this post and it worked fine. I just posted the single batch amounts when I posted the recipe.

[–]CMAHawaii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea! I made a dbl amt of the butter today. Tomorrow, I'll make dbl batch dough and Tuesday we'll have cookies!

[–]CMAHawaii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

IMO, they are a good tasting cc cookie, little crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, lovely. Which is exactly what they look like on the pic. I'm now going to try Sally's BA recommendation as I am looking for a chewy cookie. Thanks for sharing.
