Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Brown Butter and Bourbon – PureWow

We’ve tried a lot of desserts, but there’s one we always come back to: the chocolate chip cookie. While these chocolate chunk cookies (from Eitan Bernath’s cookbook, Eitan Eats the World) might be an upgrade from your usual back-of-the-bag recipe, they’re still easy for any level of baker to make. Plus, they have brown butter and bourbon in them.

“My favorite food in the entire world is a chocolate chip cookie,” he writes. “So, of course, I am also a proud chocolate chip cookie snob. These are your childhood chocolate chip cookies all grown up.”

Freezing the dough before baking may seem like an odd step, but as Bernath explains, it serves two important functions: It keeps the cookies from spreading too thin as they bake and it flash-freezes the dough—handy if you want to make the cookies in batches.
