When we say these are the BEST chocolate chip cookies you will ever have or make, we are not exaggerating. We love these cookies so much – they are truly our favorite recipe we have here at Food Dolls.
Make the browned butter. Once melted, add instant espresso and mix in. Set aside for about 20 minutes to allow the butter espresso mixture to infuse and cool.
In a medium bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt to combine. Add the brown butter mixture, brown sugar, light brown sugar and white sugar to a large bowl and mix until well blended.
Next, add 1 egg and beat the ingredients together for 1-2 minutes. Then add the egg yolk and vanilla extract and beat for another 1-2 minutes.
Add the dry ingredients to butter, sugar and egg mixture, and mix just until the ingredients are combined.
Gently stir in the chocolate chunks and chocolate chips. Scoop out about 1/3 cup of the dough and roll into balls. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Remove the chocolate chip cookie batter from the fridge. Place on a non-stick baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake the cookies on the center rack for 14-16 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
After a couple minutes, transfer the cookies to a wire rack and allow them to cool. Sprinkle with maldon salt, or your favorite flaky sea salt!
