Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you haven't hopped on the brown butter bandwagon, make these cookies and you will definitely be on it. The browned butter adds a nutty, caramelly flavor to these cookies. As an added bonus, there is some good-for-you whole wheat in this recipe. So these cookies are completely healthy. At least that's what I tell myself after eating quite a few!

makes about 40 cookies

1 cup salted butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 eggs
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped and toasted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment or spray with cooking spray.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. The butter will foam and bubble. This means that the water is evaporating from the butter. The butter will begin to brown. Once well browned, remove the butter from the heat and pour into a small bowl. Allow the butter to cool for ten minutes or so.

In a mixing bowl, stir together the sugars and butter. Add the vanilla and eggs. Add the salt and baking soda. Stir to combine. Add the flours and stir to combine. Add the chocolate chips and walnuts and stir. Place bowl in the fridge for 15 or so minutes.

Scoop with a small cookie scoop onto the prepared sheet pan. Cook for 10-12 minutes and let cool.
