Browned Butter Chocolate Cookies

This was my first time browning butter and using it to bake cookies. The browned butter adds a depth to the flavor of cookies in a tasty way. I’m glad that these cookies turned out so well despite it being my first time experimenting with them! I also recommend the walnut milk from Elmhurst in the photos. It’s very tasty without any artificial gums! Their oat milk is also delicious!~

These Browned Butter Chocolate Cookies were a gift to Chai as part of his Valentine’s day present. I created a personalized advent calendar for his Valentine’s day present and included these cookies as part of the treats for one of the days. Creating an advent calendar was a lot more work than I thought but it was worth it seeing the smile and joy on his face everyday! 😊
