Brown butter and Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies. Taking a few extra minutes to brown the butter before adding it to your recipe truly makes a WORLD of a difference. It adds a rich, nutty undertone to your baked good and almost tastes like caramel and butterscotch at the same time. Is that even possible? Ohhhh yeah. Oh, and it makes your kitchen smell heavenly. **Don’t burn that butter! Burnt butter tastes bitter and no one wants to take a bitter bite out of a cookie.
