My browned butter Pistachio Chocolate Chunk Cookies are the perfect cookie.

The browned butter give this cookie an extra layer of divineness.

The pistachios give the crunch and touch of salt.

And, the chunks of chocolate provide the gooeyness we all want in every single bite.

Browned Butter –

Melt 4 sticks of salted butter in a cast iron skillet on low heat.  Once melted, turn heat to medium and whisk constantly for 5-10 minutes until the butter turns a golden brown.  Remove from burner and allow to cool slightly before pouring into a container.  Allow to cool completely before chilling in refrigerator to allow it to solidify.  You will remove the browned butter from refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature. 1 pound of butter will give you a little over 1 1/2 cups of browned butter.

  • use high quality chocolate bars and cut them into chunks.  Chocolate chips will not give you the same cookie.
  • all ingredients need to be at room temperature.
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes (plus chilling)
  • Cook Time: 14-16 minutes
