Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie is an easy crowd pleaser when you need a chocolate chip cookie fix! Brown butter makes this ultra delish!
I have a chocolate chip cookie monster on my hands. It’s all because of my friend Jorge. On weekends when Ben is working, Emmett and I have a breakfast date at the cafe in town. We always sit in Jorge’s section, and she and I always get a proper catch up, talk about our kids, and she spoils Emmett with chocolate chips. I adore her, she adores him. It’s amazing. We have kids the same age, and it’s wonderful to have developed another mom friend in the area.
So most weekends, Emmett and I also make chocolate chip cookies so he can sneak a few extra chocolate chips, and he loves helping add in the butter and help mama with the mixer. This weekend we switched it up with a brown butter chocolate chip skillet cookie.
It is impossible to keep his chubby baby hands out of the photo, no matter how hard I try. And at some point I just let it happen. One day I will look back at these photos, remember telling Emmett to just “look with your eyes and not your hands”, failing at that miserably, and then letting his curiosity filter into the photos, letting him play with the spoons, and sneak bites of warm cookie, or steal sprinkled chocolate chips from my photo boards. I love how much he loves being with me, experiencing baking and cooking.
It is our special bond and time together. I hope it continues to grow and grow.
If you’re new to making brown butter, be sure to use my how to guide on how to make brown butter. It’s super easy, and worth the added effort. It takes a vigilant eye, but it makes cookies extra nutty and delicious. You can add it in to more than cookies and baked goods.
