- 2 1/4 c bread flour
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 stk butter, unsalted
- 1/4 c sugar
- 1 1/4 c brown sugar, dark, firmly packed
- 1 Tbsp half and half cream (or milk)
- 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 lg egg
- 1 lg egg yolk
- 2 c chocolate chips (bittersweet)

1.   Sift together flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.

2.   Melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Continue to cook on low heat, stirring often, until butter is browned. Turn off heat and stir in white and brown sugars.

3.   Scrape into a medium mixing bowl and use electric mixer to cream the butter and sugars together. Add half & half, lemon juice, vanilla extract and eggs. Mix in until well combined.

4.   Add half of the flour mixture and incorporate into the batter with electric mixer. Add the rest and mix until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. The cookie dough will be very soft and buttery. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill until firm (an hour or two).

5.   Preheat oven to 375°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop up heaping Tablespoonfuls of cookie dough and use your hands to roll into balls. Place 12 balls on a sheet, keeping about an inch and a half between each ball.

6.   Bake 10 to 12 minutes, depending on how large you’ve rolled your balls (mine took 11 minutes).

That's when you cook butter until it's slightly browned.

Thank you, Renee.  I wasn't at all sure what it was.

You're welcome, it brings out a strong flavor in the desert.  It's good when brown sugar is involved, but not with scrambled eggs ect.

 I wonder why recipes call for bitter chocolate instead of milk chocolate?
