Detailed Recipe Steps
Step 1: Brown Butter
The first step to making our delicious browned butter salted double chocolate chip cookies recipe is to brown the butter. To do this, you’ll need to melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. As the butter melts, it will start to foam and bubble. This is the water in the butter evaporating.
Keep an eye on the butter as it cooks, and you’ll start to notice brown specks forming on the bottom of the pan. These are the milk solids that are caramelizing and giving the butter its nutty flavor. Once you see these brown specks, turn off the heat and let the butter cool for a few minutes.
What Color Browned Butter Are You Looking For?
Not sure what color browned butter you are looking for when making the double chocolate chip cookies recipe? Don’t worry, we went ahead and did the work for you!
The three mason jars above show all the different levels of browned butter. We personally like the dark one the best because we think the flavor is more intense! At the end of the day though, it is a personal preference!
Step 2: Mix Flour, Salt, Baking Soda and set aside.
While the butter is cooling, mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a small bowl and set aside.
Step 3: Mix cooled browned butter and sugar in a mixer.
Once the butter has cooled, add it to a mixing bowl along with the brown sugar and white sugar. Mix on medium speed until the sugars are well combined with the butter.
Step 4: Add egg, yolk, Greek Yogurt and vanilla into butter/sugar. Mix until combined.
Next, add the egg, yolk, greek yogurt, and vanilla to the mixing bowl and continue to mix until everything is well combined.
Step 5: Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in mixer and mix.
With the wet ingredients mixed together, slowly add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl and continue to mix until everything is well combined.
Step 6: Fold in chocolate chips and refrigerate for at least 4-hours, preferably overnight.
Once the dough is mixed together, fold in the chocolate chips. Then, cover the dough and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. This will help the dough to firm up and make it easier to scoop and bake.
Step 7: Scoop cookie dough with a cookie scoop and bake at 350 Fahrenheit for 9-11 minutes.
When you’re ready to bake the cookies, preheat your oven to 350°F. Using a cookie scoop, portion out the dough and place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes, or until they are golden brown around the edges.
Step 8: Sprinkle Sea Salt Flakes on cookies a few minutes after you pull them out. Let cool and Enjoy!
As soon as you remove the cookies from the oven, let cool for a minute and then sprinkle some sea salt flakes on top of each cookie. This will give the cookies a bit of extra flavor and balance out the sweetness. ENJOY!
What you will need to make our Browned Butter Salted Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Making sure that you have a good quality sea salt for this double chocolate chip cookies recipe is critical! The Maldon sea salt flakes are the only ones we use as we think it brings out the best flavor to balance out the sweetness of the chocolate!
The addition of sea salt flakes on top of the cookies really takes these cookies over the top. Plus, the contrast between the salty and sweet flavors is always a winning combination.
We have a large oven in our home that fits the Wilton Bake It Better Non-Stick Cookie Pan and we love them. We do not recommend placing two trays in the oven at once. Keeping it one tray at a time yields the best results.
We are big GHIRARDELLI chocolate fans, so we highly recommend using it for both your semi-sweet chocolate chips and your dark chocolate chips. The semi-sweet chocolate chips add a classic chocolate flavor to the cookies, while the dark chocolate chips add a bit of depth and bitterness that really enhances the overall flavor of the cookies.
Plus, using a combination of chocolate chips means you get a bit of both in every bite, which is always a win.
For almost all my baking, I rely heavily on my KitchenAid stand mixer. It truly makes my baking easy and quick!
Now that your cookies are baked and cooled, it’s time to dig in and enjoy the fruits of your labor. These browned butter salted double chocolate chip cookies are sure to be a hit with anyone who loves chocolate and wants to elevate their classic chocolate chip cookie game.
