Time to brown the butter. Melt it over medium heat swirling often until it turns a gorgeous deep golden brown. You’ll see brown bits at the bottom of the pan. That’s a good thing.

How To Brown Buter

  1. Place butter in small saucepan over medium-low heat. Swirl and melt completely. Butter will boil. Continue to swirl and cook until butter turns golden brown and brown bits start forming on bottom of pan. Once butter has a nutty scent and is deep golden brown, remove from heat and transfer to a heat proof bowl. Make sure you spoon out all little black bits from the saucepan. Let brown butter cool at least 15 minutes before using in a cookie recipe.

This fleur de sel sea salt is amazing if you can find it. If not, kosher salt will do the trick too 🙂

 If you like your cookies a bit more flat, press the dough down with your hand before baking. I was in the mood for a thick round cookie today.

  1. I’ve always been frightened of brown butter recipes simply because it seems it is always a matter of holding my breath and crossing my fingers that I don’t overdo and go from brown butter to um, burned butter. I think your recipe here has convinced me to give it a go 😀 Thanks for the nudge!

  2. Oh I can only imagine the depth of wonderful flavor of these, Jenny! The butter, the chocolate, and then softness and chewiness look perfect. Pudding mix and cornstarch both – I’ve never seen that, usually just one or the other. I bet the texture is just wonderful with these!

  3. I am also so jealous of you cookies! They look perfect every time! Mine always turn out flat and ugly!
    These must be SO good! Brown butter and dark chocolate! Two of my favorite things!

  4. Mmm one of my favorite cookies I’ve posted on my blog is a Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie! So amazing. And I have the fleur de sel, reserved for cookies only. Haha. It’s the best! These look incredible. I’m curious about the cake flour!

  5. I made these last night (with kosher salt) and they’re fabulous. This was my first brown butter experience…AND I THINK I LIKE IT. I would like to eat them all right now, but the thought of busting through my clothes, Hulk-style, is stopping me.

    YAY! I have been waiting for these since you posted on instagram! Does 1 stick of butter = 1/2 cup? thanks!Excited to make these!

  7. Jane

    Just made these – absolutely AMAZING!!!! Just FYI – it barely made a dozen cookies, not 2 dozen – but they were out of this world.

  8. Katie

    Oh my… this recipe is amazing!!!! The dough alone is the best thing ever 🙂 Thanks for posting this.
    New viewer and hooked for life 🙂

    you had me until pudding mix…
    I’ll try just browning the butter of my tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe and adding some sea salt
    The grocery stores around here all have several types of sea salt – the local chains as well as Trader Joe’s’ and Whole Foods for those looking. Otherwise try Penzeys, William Sonoma or Amazon.

    Oh. My.
    Just took these out of the oven. you were right: texture and flavor are spot on! I believe anything can be made better with brown butter and that is certainly the case with these cookies. Heavenly!!
    Thank you!

    So. Its snowing and 3 degrees in NE Wyoming. I want to try this Brown Butter Dark Chocolate Chip recipe. It sounds decadent! I live 25 miles from ANYTHING…so when I gathered my ingredients, I had to get a little creative. No running to town because I only had one cup of regular chips…so I chopped up some dark ‘bark’ chocolate. No vanilla pudding either. BOO! Added two tablespoons of dried cultured buttermilk, an extra egg yolk, doubled the vanilla, 1/2 a packet of unflavored gelatin powder, and crossed my fingers. Lastly, no koscher or sea salt. I don’t even know if I can GET sea salt in town. I just used regular salt…even to add a pinch on top of each cookie. How’d they turn out? Ummmm….I don’t think I’ve EVER tasted a chocolate chip cookie as decadent, flavorful and sinful! Thanks for the great instructions! Very detailed and easy to follow. ♥
