Making the brown butter (Beurre noisette)-

Melt the butter in a pan on slow heat. It will take 3-4 minutes, and allow the milk solids to separate. The milk solids sink to the bottom , and on slow heat they begin to brown. Leave it on for another minute and butter starts changing colour . It will brown and becomes a nice hazelnut colour. Take it off the pan and strain ( or while using make sure to leave the sediments ). Strain it and let it cool. Using brown butter adds a beautiful , nutty flavour to all desserts.


I have used whole wheat flour, you can use all purpose flour if you want. It will give you a better texture of course, but taste wise both are as good as these can be.

Butter 🧈

I used browned butter. However if you do not want to do an extra step, you can use the butter as is, without browning it.
You can use salted or unsalted butter to make this cookie. If you are using unsalted butter, do add a pinch of salt in the dry ingredients to perk up the depth of the flavours. In this recipe i used salted butter.

Sugar/ Sweetener 🍯

I used dark brown unrefined cane sugar, you can use regular refined sugar, brown sugar, or you can use maple syrup / honey. Do consider the consistency of the dough. It should be like a dough- thick and not like a batter- flowing. If you are using honey/ maple syrup you wont need to add milk. Keep the qty same as sugar, and adjust as per your taste preference.

Chocolate 🍫

You can use store bought chocolate chips , milk or dark chocolate. If you have any chocolate lying at home, you can simply slice that and use instead of getting the chocolate chips.
