These cookies are pretty alright. Just kidding! These are the best cookies I have ever stuffed into my mouth, you should stop whatever you are doing and get some butter softening to make them IMMEDIATELY! Seriously, so good. The nutty brown butter with bittersweet chocolate and sea salt is a holy trifecta that can’t be beat.
I used this recipe from Joy the Baker and made the following changes: dark brown sugar instead of light because that is what I had in my pantry, whole wheat flour, added an extra 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and this magic vanilla sea salt* instead of regular old boring salt. You could totally make your own by combining a little fleur de sel with a piece of vanilla bean in a small jar and letting it chill out for a while. Happy cookie baking!
*also delicious sprinkled on top of oatmeal, trust me.
