Brown Butter Cookies Recipe by Gills Bakes and Cakes

These brown butter cookies are the ULTIMATE chocolate chip cookies packed with flavour. They are the perfect balance of chewy, crispy and gooey! I started off this cookie recipe by browning my butter to add another dimension. This step really makes a difference for that added depth of flavour. It gives a deep, nutty, caramelised taste to the butter. Its an optional step but I think it brings the cookies to a whole new level.

Browned Butter

  1. In a small pot, add your butter and place on a medium heat.
  2. Melt your butter then let it boil until you see the milk solids sink to the bottom and turn a nice and golden brown colour.
  3. Remove from the heat and let cool for 15 minutes.


  1. Preheat your oven to 200C/ 180C and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add in your browned butter and all your sugars. Whisk until combined well.
  3. Add in your egg and vanilla and whisk till nice and fluffy.
  4. Mix in your coffee powder and vanilla.
  5. Sieve in flour, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda.
  6. Fold until you have a firm dough.
  7. Add in your chopped up chocolate and fold through.
  8. Chill your cookie dough for at least 30 minutes.
  9. Portion up 10 even cookie dough balls. I used an ice cream scoop to do this.
  10. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Once removed from the oven give the cookies a slight tap on a flat surface. Add on some flakey salt if you wish.
  11. Leave to cool for about 15 minutes.
