Break time!

January 18, 2011 § 5 Comments

So in the tournament we didn’t play to great. We weren’t ready but we have a lot of potential. Anyway wasnt suppose to break this week because of midterms but lucky me we got a snow day!:) which means I procrastinated and made cookies instead! http://www.completelydelicious.com/2011/01/brown-butter-chocolate-chipcookies.html

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies

1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups (1 pound) semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Once melted, continue to cook until it turns golden brown. Swirl the pan occasionally if needed so that it browns evenly. Watch it fairly closely, as it can go from brown to burned quickly. When the color has turned golden, small flecks speckle the butter, and it has a nutty aroma, remove from heat and poor into a shallow dish. Chill in the fridge until it becomes solid. You want it to be soft, but not melted. If it cool too hard, let it come back to room temperature before using.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Beat the brown butter, sugar, and brown sugar on medium high speed with an electric mixer until light and creamy, about 4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each. Add the vanilla.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until just combined on medium speed. Add the chocolate chips and mix until incorporated.
Spoon by the tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving 2 inches in between each cookie. Bake until golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

 

Something went wrong with these cookies they were good but very pale compared to the sites cookies. I think it was the browning of the butter. Does anyone know easier instructions from browning butter?
