Well, that right there? That’s about all you need to know. I rest my case.
Haha, just kidding…sort of. Seeing a title and picture of these cookies was all I needed to know they should be in my life. Chocolate chip cookies may just be my favorite dessert of all. They are so classic, comforting…they are the thing I crave. For me after the kids are finally in bed, my happy place is on the couch with a cookie, small glass of milk and a good book. Normally this is a classic that, in my opinion, needs no improving. But…it’s just so hard to argue against brown butter, Nutella and a sprinkling of sea salt. I mean, really.
I used a technique suggested by a reader for the filling of the pumpkin cream cheese muffins, freezing the little dollops of Nutella so that the cookies would be easier to assemble. This was definitely a good way to go (I love the technique for the muffins too!) Enjoy them this weekend in your happy place!
