GIANT SALTED BROWN BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Prep time: 50 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes
Makes 5 giant cookies
240g salted butter, cut into blocks
260g muscovado sugar
15ml (1 Tbsp) vanilla extract
10ml (2 tsp) coffee powder
5ml (1 tsp) salt
5ml (1 tsp) baking powder
Pinch of bicarbonate of soda
250g dark chocolate chips
Place the butter into a saucepan on a low heat and allow to melt. Once melted, cook for a few minutes longer to allow the butter to brown and become foamy. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely before use.
Once the butter is cooled, whisk 95g of the burned butter with the sugar until creamy for about 5 minutes.
Add the eggs one by one as well as the vanilla extract and coffee powder. Cream the mixture for another 4-5 minutes.
Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda together. Add the dry ingredients and the dark chocolate chips to the butter mixture and mix well until combined and you have a cookie dough.
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and spray with non-stick food spray. Place balls of about 175g of cookie dough evenly spread on the baking tray. Place the baking tray in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes to rest.
Bake the cookies for about 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy!
