At least that is what our family has decided.

Logan came home a few weeks ago to tell me he created the best cookie recipe ever over at his fiancĂ© Rileys families house. I of course was a little skeptical given my cookie connoisseur skills. So, I said, "How about you make them for me and I can be the judge of that." 

The following weekend he made another double batch and I'm here to tell you they were extremely addicting. I then made another double batch the following weekend so I could share his cookie magic with you.

This Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie base gives these cookies a delicious slightly nutty toffee like flavor. Then he added some Peanut Butter Chips and Reeses Pieces to send these threw the roof making them a favorite fall cookie recipe with the colors but sooo good they definitely need to be added to Christmas cookie trays too. 

I maybe totally obsessed with these.




Brown Butter in a medium sized stainless steel saucepan.

In a medium sized sauce pan cook 10 tablespoons Salted Butter over medium heat swirling pan as needed until brown and nutty smelling. 

Whatever you do be careful not to burn the butter. If it burns you have to start over. So it's better to go low and slow if you haven't browned butter before.

Brown Butter and cold butter added to a stainless steel mixing bowl.

Move browned butter to a mixing bowl and add remaining 4 tablespoons Cold Butter and mix until butter is melted.

Brown Butter in a mixing bowl with granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and salt added.

Add to the brown butter:
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
Mix until blended.

Beaten egg added to brown butter mixture in a stainless steel mixing bowl.

Mix together until well combined:
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 whole Egg Yolk
Add beaten egg to the sugar mixture and mix on medium-high speed for 30 seconds.

Allow mixture to rest for 3 minutes and then beat again for 30 seconds. 

Repeat until batter becomes thick and pale yellow. Depending on the temperature of the house this sometimes takes longer than other times but is an important step in the process for a nice cookie consistency when baked.

Once batter thickens and becomes pale yellow add 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda and beat for another 30 seconds.

Scrape down sides of bowl.
