[Small Batch] Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Small Batch Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let me start this by saying these might just be the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever tasted (and there has been quite a few!) Please excuse the strange lighting in my photos (these and my lemon cake photos were taken just after I got my new camera and I had no clue what I was doing at the time!) Just trust me these cookies taste amazing, please make them.

They make just six cookies, so they’re really not that dangerous. They are golden and crispy right around the edge, perfectly soft and chewy in the middle and flavoured with browned butter, brown sugar, vanilla and sea salt. There is no chilling time, or anything silly like that, so you can have them prepped, baked and ready to put straight in your mouth in less than 30 minutes.

You start by browning the butter, then whisk in the sugar, vanilla, sea salt and egg yolk. Fold in the dry ingredients and you’re good to go!

  23. These sound incredible! Would the recipe be as easy as doubling the ingredients for a “slightly bigger” batch?

      Hi Jessica, thanks! I think you could definitely just double the ingredients to make a bigger batch. The only difference I would maybe make would be to add a whole egg instead of another yolk (so 1 egg + 1 yolk altogether.) Hope that helps!

    These were delicious! One question though: mine came out a little puffy and much thicker than the cookies pictured. Any idea why that could happen? I may have added a little extra vanilla (I didn’t really measure it) but otherwise followed the recipe as stated. Could it have to do with the way I folded the flour in?

    • Rosie @ Blueberry Kitchen on June 5, 2013 at 5:38 pm said:

      Hi Rachel, I’m so happy you liked them! Thanks so much for letting me know :) I’m really sorry I’m not sure why they would have turned out puffier. I did google ‘what makes cookies puffy’ and the only possible suggestion I could really find was that they might have been slightly over-mixed?

  25. I just made these (in fact still eating them) – AMAZING!! I love the small batch. I am not much of a baker so it was nice finding a recipe that had already been cut down. The added touch of salt on the top was perfect.

  26. Ahhhh I hate to say this but I did not like these at all.. I loooove butter and sugar but this was just way too rich and not in a good way. :( I could barely eat half a cookie, so intense!
