Brown Butter White Chocolate Chip Cookies are everything a cookie should be and more. Gooey, chewy, buttery and chocolatey. The addition of brown butter adds a toffee-like flavor to these cookies. Combined with white chocolate chips, you have a cookie match made in heaven!
What is Brown Butter?
Want to know something crazy? I had actually never made brown butter before making these cookies! I know, some of you may be shaking your heads at me, but I just never understood the hype..until now! Brown butter is definitely worth ALL the hype!
Essentially brown butter is when you melt butter over low heat, gently stirring, until it starts to brown. The smell will be nutty and toffee-like. However, there is a fine line where you can burn it, so keep your eyes on it!
Once the butter is browned, you want it to cool and start to harden back up for this cookie recipe. I just pour mine straight into the bottom of the mixing bowl I’m planning on using so that I don’t have to dirty multiple dishes.
Other Ingredients Needed
Besides brown butter, this recipe has all the cookie essentials. With another exception: white chocolate chips! I just love how their creaminess compliments the toffee, nutty flavor of the brown butter.
- Brown sugar
- Baking soda
- White chocolate chips
After the cookie dough is whipped up, it’s time to scoop the cookies! I’ve found that having a medium-sized cookie scoop on hand is life-saving. It’s a much-used item in our household!
Side note: it’s quite hard to resist this cookie dough! My mom and I couldn’t keep our hands off of it!
