These are a permutation of Jessica's Brown Butter Chocolate-Stuffed Toffee Cookies. I didn't have any toffee chips on hand, so I went with just chocolate and re-named them. I highly recommend making these or any of the other cookies on Jessica's website. I may or may not have made most of them repeatedly.
Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg + 1 yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups + 2 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter, whisking constantly. Continue to whisk until brown bits are at the bottom. Remove from heat immediately (butter burns fast) and let cool 10-15 minutes.
Mix the butter with the two sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix in the flour mixture until a dough forms. It will be crumbly, so use your hands to mix it all together. Roll about 1 tbsp of dough into a ball and press chocolate chip into the center. Top with another 1 tbsp dough ball and place on baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
