Brown butter adds extra deliciousness to these oatmeal chocolate cookies. Honestly, they are the best cookies I've eaten (store-bought or homemade)! Prepare the brown butter in advance because it will have to cool completely.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (168 degrees C).

  • Beat browned butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together in a large bowl until smooth and creamy. Beat one egg into the butter mixture until smooth; add second egg and vanilla extract and beat again until smooth and uniform in color.

  • Mix oats, flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; add to the browned butter mixture and stir to get a cookie dough. Stir chocolate chips into the dough. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonful onto baking sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until edges and bottoms are golden brown, about 12 minutes. Cool on sheets for 10 minutes before transferring to wire cooling racks to cool completely.

A very nice recipe although not much different than Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips. I was hoping the browned butter would have a more pronounced taste. They hold their shape well. Thanks! Read More

These are really good, crispy and buttery. I bake half and freeze the rest for great cookies in a jiffy. Read More
