Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Recipe by Emma Moore

When it comes to comfort cooking, we turned to our friend (and recent HG bride) Emma Moore of Emma's Eatery Catering. We asked Emma to share some of her best comfort recipes, and first out of the gate is this brown butter chocolate chunk cookie. "There's nothing better than the smell of butter browning in a pan," Emma explains. "It's caramelly, toasty and lends a subtle toffee flavour to the finished cookie."

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter, browned

  • ⅔ cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 ½ cup flour

  • ½ tsp baking soda

  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 1 whole egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate, cut into chunks

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

  • In a separate bowl mix together the brown and granulated sugars.

  • On medium-high heat, brown butter in a pan until fragrant. Add to the bowl of sugars and whisk vigorously, add in the vanilla while butter is still warm.

  • Add the egg yolks and egg to the butter and sugar mixture and continue to whisk quickly until blended and lightened in colour.

  • Slowly fold the butter and sugar mixture into the dry ingredients. Add in chopped chocolate shards or chips.

  • Using a cookie scoop to ensure even sizing, scoop your dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, pull closer to 10 minutes if you enjoy a softer cookie.

Tip: "Freeze the raw dough in scoops and then bake a few cookies at a time when you feel like them." - Emma
