Browned Butter Chocolate and Toffee Chip Cookies
Nutty and delicious, browned butter adds a rich layer of flavor to these chocolate and toffee chip cookies.
1 c butter
2½ c all-purpose flour *
1 t baking soda
½ t sea salt
1 c dark brown sugar
½ c sugar
2 lg eggs, beaten
2 t vanilla
2 c semisweet chocolate chips
2 Skor toffee bars (1.4 oz ea), cut into small chunks

Preheat oven to 350º and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium saucepan melt butter and bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until butter passes from foamy to light amber and smells nutty (do not scorch). Immediately remove from pan, pouring butter into a mixing bowl, stirring to quickly stop cooking. Set aside. Combine flour, baking soda and sea salt and set aside. Add to the browned butter: sugars, eggs and vanilla, stirring to combine, then pour into flour mixture and stir with a spatula or spoon. Add chocolate and toffee. Drop onto baking sheet in 2 T portions, 2” apart, arranging a few chocolate chips on top. Bake 10-12 min until edges are golden. Sprinkle with scant pinch of flake salt, as desired. Cool on sheet for few minutes before transferring to rack to cool.
