By Annemarie Maitri - Winter 2017 Issue
This version of the classic chocolate chip cookie uses brown butter for a lovely nutty flavor, and they’re dusted with a sprinkling of salt for grown-up appeal.
Recipe Detail Serves: 12 40 minutes Prep Time, 9 minutes Cook Time
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.
Heat butter in a small pan over medium heat until melted, 2 to 5 minutes. When it begins to brown and smell nutty, remove from heat.
In a large bowl, combine butter with both sugars, salt and vanilla. Add eggs and whisk for 30 seconds.
Add flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chips and walnuts. Batter will be sticky.
Shape into 12 balls and press lightly onto parchment lined or ungreased cookie sheets. Chill on pans for 20 minutes.
While cookies are chilling, heat oven to 350 degrees. Dust tops of cookies with salt and bake for 9 minutes, or until golden brown, turning pans halfway through baking.
