Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

These Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies have been a delicious experiment. All my favorite twists have worked perfectly on the Nestle Toll House cookie recipe. They’ve become a favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie!

It looks pleasantly homemade after it’s baked. The texture is crisp on the edges, chewy in the center. Browned butter gives them a slightly nutty taste, and the sprinkling of flaked sea salt is a nice surprise to everyone. Enjoy!
