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.
