Little bit of a mouthful there.

But it’s like a cookie on top of another cookie!

Yeah. Like total dirty cookie on cookie action.

Except these ones down below wanted to try a few different positions.

I dunno… they’re all mixed up.

In order to solve a common I-want-a-chocolate-CHOCOLATE-cookie-but-he-wants-a-plain-chocolate chip-cookie dilemma that happens like, every single weekend here… I made both. On top of each other.

Some of them smashed up against each other while others sat on top of each other but in the end, they all tasted… fantabulous. Whichever way the ended up together. Best of both worlds. Literally.

And then they tasted extra delicious after I spent two hours cleaning out the contents of our bar (take that as you will), after he spent three hours organizing the pantry (that was weird) and after we both needed to severely eat our emotions immediately post-Boardwalk Empire finale.

WHAT was that. ???????


Then I tried to dunk a cookie in milk and failed.

I need cookie dunking lessons, a redo on season 2 (thanks HBO), and a salad. Yeah… that would probably be a good idea.

Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies

[from giant rainbow cookies]

makes 24 cookies

**You have two options here to make the dough. You can make two separate half batches of the recipe below in two different bowls (recommended if you don’t have a kitchen scale). Or, you can make the dough as calls for through adding the egg and vanilla extract. Then use a kitchen scale, measure it in grams, put an equal amount in each bowl, then make chocolate chip in one bowl and double fudge chip in the other. The latter is what I did and how I’m writing the recipe.**

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) of unsalted butter

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Heat a saucepan over medium-low heat and add butter. Whisk constantly until brown bits appear on the bottom (about 5 minutes), then remove and let cool completely. Once cool, add to a large bowl with sugars and whisk until completely smooth. Add in egg and egg yolk, whisking until combined, then add in vanilla.

Separate the dough into two doughs: Place an empty bowl on a kitchen scale measuring in grams, then pour the sugar mixture into the bowl, scraping all of it out. Note the weight in grams. Remove the full bowl from the scale, and place the bowl that previously held the butter/sugar mixture on the scale (taring it to 0). Add half of the butter/sugar mixture into the bowl – so each bowl has an equal amount of dough.

In one bowl, add 1 cup of flour, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and a pinch of salt, then mix until a dough forms, using your hands if necessary. Fold in half of the chocolate chips. Set aside.

In the second bowl, add remaining flour and baking soda, cocoa powder and a pinch of salt, mixing until a dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips.

Roll each dough into 12 balls (about an inch thick) so you end up with 24. As demonstrated in the rainbow cookies, pull each ball apart. Take one chocolate chip half and one double fudge half, placing the round ends together with the rough edges out like in the second picture. Place dough rough-side down on a non-stick baking sheet about 1 1/2-2 inches apart.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are a little soft in the middle and golden on the edges. Let cool completely.

Double lovin’ cookies. I like it.

    I never understand what a ‘stick’ of butter weighs. I only know it in grams eg half of butter here would be 125 grams.

    I just made this and they taste yum!! However, the double choc chip batter came out very wet, I couldn’t roll it into a dough at all so it’s like normal choc chip cookies with a double choc chip splodge in the middle/to the side/somewhere else! Still delicious though! I even tried adding more flour/cocoa to my batter but it still didn’t work.

    I’m so excited to make this recipe :D
    But can I use shortening in place of butter? Will it make a big difference?

    These were so fun to make! My first time using brown butter was a success :) Only problem was that the cocoa batter was WAY too wet!! Had to add a sufficient amount of flower.

    About to try this recipe now!
    As I review, it occurs to me that the entire second paragraph could be shortened to one sentence: “separate the dough into two equal parts.”
    It’s so much easier to read that way :)
