Instructions on how to make BA’s best chocolate chip cookies!

  • Step 1:

Prepare the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit by positioning the racks in the top and bottom thirds of the space. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda, and then put aside.

  • Step 2:

Cook a half of cup of butter, which is 1 stick of butter (about 113 g of butter) in a large saucepan over medium heat until foaming and browning. This process should take approximately 4 minutes.

During this time, stir the pan often and scrape the bottom of the pan with a heat-resistant rubber spatula.

Place the butter in a big basin that can withstand heat and let it to cool for one minute. Brown butter should have little chunks of butter that have been cut from the remaining 1/4 cup of butter, which is a half stick of butter, approximately 56 g. The butter would probably start to melt but not foam and sizzle, so test with one piece before adding the rest ingredients into it.

  • Step 3:

After the butter has melted, add both sugars and whisk the mixture, making sure to break up any clumps, until all of the sugar has been mixed and there are no more clumps.

Whisk in the egg and egg yolks until the sugar has dissolved and the liquid is smooth, which should take around 30 seconds.

Whisk in vanilla fold the reserved remaining ingredients into the butter mixture that we just have made. Then, use a rubber spatula to mix just until there are no dry spots left (which is also known as clums). Once the clums have left, then fold in the chocolate chips that we have prepared.

The dough will be soft till now. Next is the scoping process. However, it should hold its shape once scooped; if it slumps or oozes after being scooped, stir the dough back together several times, and let it rest for five to ten minutes until the scoops hold their shape as the flour hydrates).

  • Step 4:

Make 16 balls of dough and distribute them between two rimmed baking sheets that have been prepared with parchment paper. Use a scoop that measures 1.5 ounces (3 tablespoons) to scoop the dough into small balls.

Cookies should be baked for 8–10 minutes, during which time they should get a deep golden brown color and become hard around the edges. Sheets should be rotated if the cookies are browning extremely unevenly; otherwise, they can be left alone. Allow to cool while still on baking sheets.
