These cookies are PHENOMENAL. In the 36 years of my life, I think this is the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had.
Why so different?
These cookies are stuffed with Nutella (hazel nut spread) inside! And I’m not done yet. Brown butter* is added to the cookie dough, and after the cookies are baked, they are sprinkled with sea salt.
Yep, these cookies got it all. Great balance of flavors (that’s my friend John’s word).
Phew. Do I need to say more? Sometimes a picture is worth a thousands words.
This past weekend I gave these cookies as a little gift with party favors for my daughter’s 5th birthday party. My own children were crazy over these cookies so I hope other children enjoyed them as well. And I need to make these again soon!
*Brown butter, also known as beurre noisette in French, is a magical ingredient that has nice rich nutty aroma. It can be easily made by cooking unsalted butter which results in separating into butterfat and milk solids. The milk solids naturally sink to the bottom of the pan and begin to brown, releasing toasted nutty aroma. Here’s the video of how to make it.
