Today is one of those days. Get lost on your way to work, realize your shoe is broken, then get yelled at by your boss kind of day.
These cookies are for these kinds of days. Good thing there is a tin of them on my desk waiting to be shamelessly consumed as soon as the next fire ignites.
The basis and inspiration is this lovely post from one of my fave food blogs, Baker Bettie. She’s pretty awesome. Like a less annoying Alton Brown.
I modified the chocolate chip cookie recipe to my taste: caramel-y, chewy, moist, chocolatey, gooey, yummy. Browned butter is the secret.
Here are some shots of how mine turned out. I would write a longer, more thought-out post, but I am really busy drowning my sorrows in the leftovers. Sorry about that.
