Let’s face it, life was less stressful and more fun the past couple of weeks when the kids were on break and Chris had a few extra days off. I didn’t have to rush from workout to shower to forcing breakfast on the kids. There was no holding them down while trying to brush their teeth and get them dressed, just sweet little babes and lazy days. That’s exactly why I’m dreaming of my favorite bakery style chocolate chip cookie recipe right now. Back-to-school was rough. Stressful days make me crave sweets and these warm chocolate chip cookies are just the fix I need.

Please note that I’m not a patient person. As you’ll see below, I do not let the brown butter cool before moving onto the next step, which results in the swirling of chocolate chips. If this makes you cringe, you are a better person than I and are welcome to wait until the butter cools before proceeding. I promise, it won’t effect the taste one bit.

There are a couple secrets to my bakery style chocolate chip cookie recipe – these cookies are just as simple, but these little adaptations make them better than the bakery:

  • Brown the butter. Browned butter makes everything better.
  • Don’t over mix. Over beaten eggs will always fall flatter.
  • Make large dough balls and refrigerate.
  • Top them with cracked sea salt.
  • Don’t overbake.
  • Do serve/enjoy them warm. I put them in the microwave for 20 seconds before enjoying.

  • Shelley says:

    I made these and they are delicious but not cooling the brown butter makes the chocolate chips melt. Common sense tells me to cool the brown butter first, but I like to always follow a recipe as is before making changes. They still taste great but are more like chocolate marbled brown butter cookies. Will definitely cool the brown butter next time.

      You show more patience than I…marbled chocolate has never bothered me, but you can absolutely cool the butter first if you prefer. I’m glad the you enjoyed them. Have a beautiful week!
