a recipe, of course from Picky Palate (SO many good recipes here!), for a browned butter chocolate chunk cookie on Pinterest (actually, it is the first pin in my "Sweets" board)...and I figured this was a good time to try it out.
(I doubled this recipe with no problems!)
- 1 stick/1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place butter into a small saucepan over medium heat. Melt and swirl pan until butter is browned with brown bits stuck to the bottomo of the pan. Takes generally 5-8 minutes.
Place sugars into stand mixer and add browned butter mixing to combine. Add egg, vanilla, mixing to combine then add flour, salt, baking soda, cocoa powder and chocolate chunks. Mix until combined then scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet, pressing cookies evenly, about 1/4 inch thick. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove and let cookies cool on rack for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
