How To Make The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe has some special ingredients that make these cookies AMAZING. You’ll need to brown your stick of butter and let it cool slightly before getting started with your cookie recipe. See my post on How To Brown Butter for full details. It’s simple to do and it brings such an amazing flavor to your cookies. You’ll also need to soften your cream cheese. If you forget, place your block of cream cheese in the oven on “warm” for about 10 minutes. That does the trick too.

Once your brown butter has cooled slightly add the softened cream cheese and brown butter to a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Beat well, until smooth and creamy.

Dry ingredients up next! If you’ve never had “malted” cookies don’t be afraid of it. It’s very mild. Another big flavor booster. I use the Carnation brand you can find at most grocery stores.

Crushed Oreo Cookies into the bowl. That’s a gorgeous sight to see!

You can use chocolate chips or chunk your own chocolate like I’ve done here. I love the bloc of chocolate you can get at Trader Joe’s. It’s about $4.99 and lasts me for a long time. I like that the chocolate stays gooey for a while when baked with these chunks.

Give all of the ingredients a good mix. This dough is DANGEROUS. Fair warning.

Make your cookies as large as you’d like. I used a medium cookie scoop and did a heaping scoop so decided to just bake 6 at a time. Place dough 1 inch apart from each other. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until baked through. Let cool before transferring.

    I’m seeing refined sugar in the ingredients list, but not mentioned anywhere else. I’m confused! ? They taste really good, and taste like cookies, so I’m not super worried about it, just confused.
