  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, beat the cooled browned butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Don’t overmix.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.

  2. You can use dark chocolate chips or milk chocolate chips instead of semisweet chocolate chips.
  3. For even chewier cookies, chill the dough for 30 minutes before baking.
