Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I grew up with a mother who has innumerable talents, few of which are baking.  If she ever made cookies for us, I can't remember, but I'm sure she'll correct me.  I however, love to bake and live with 24 teenage girls, all of whom require chocolately confections on a regular basis to keep the crazy at bay.  This is my holy grail, ride or die cookie recipe that, as long as you can brown butter, is a piece of cake (PUNS), and you have to brown the butter - the deep, nutty, caramel flavor it gives the cookies is incredible

  1. Let the record reflect: I make a damn good scone and send banana bread back for those same girls every time my baker-daughter comes to my home. And I provided the above pictured Mix-Master to foster her talent-that-she-did-not-get-from-me.
    That is all.
