Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
 
 
Yield: 20 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Topping
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • flaky salt
Instructions
  1. Cook butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until it foams, turns clear, and then turns a deep brown, about 6 minutes. Pour browned butter into a glass measuring cup and chill in the freezer until solidified, about 45 minutes to an hour.
  2. Whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat solidified brown butter and dark brown sugar in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until creamy; beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture; beat just until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips. Cover dough and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F (If cookie dough has chilled overnight, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking). Line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Form 1 1/2-inch balls of dough and place two inches apart on prepared baking sheets; flatten mounds slightly.
  4. Top cookies with remaining chocolate chips, pressing to adhere. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake, rotating pans halfway through, for 8 minutes, until edges are set. Cool for 4 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
