Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 12-15 Cookies 1x


These are THE chocolate chip cookies for you to bring to your holiday parties this year. They’ve got a warm, deep flavor profile from the brown butter and loads of chocolate chunks to make it extra chocolatey.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 11.5 cups of Chocolate Chunks, chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
  • Sea Salt, for topping


  1. Brown the butter : on a medium saucepan melt the butter and keep stirring until the butter turns brown. Once the butter starts to bubble keep an eye on it – it happens fast! There are plenty of videos on YouTube if it’s your first time browning butter.
  2. Add the brown butter, 1 tbsp water, brown sugar and white sugar and mix well, then beat in egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Add the wet butter and sugar mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until blended.
  4. Stir in roughly chopped chocolate or chocolate chips. Chill the dough for 1 hour. Scoop 12 balls and bake for 10-14 minutes at 375F. 
  5. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
