I found this recipe on several blogs. The main difference is browning the butter.
1 cup of butter
1 cup of packed brown sugar
1/2 cup of sugar
2 tsp of vanilla
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 tsp of baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1-2 cups of chocolate chips. I used 1 bag of Hersey's Dark Chocolate chips
Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
In a small sauce pan melt butter over medium heat until butter starts to brown and give off a nutty smell. (The butter will creat brown bits in the pan which should be used in the mix). Let butter cool.
Mix butter and sugars in kitchen mixer using flat paddle to mix until smooth.
Add eggs, one egg at a time.
Add half flour mixture. Blend 15 seconds add rest of flour mixture.
Fold in chocolate chips and refridgerate for at least an hour or two. Preferrably 6 hours. I did about an hour and half because I couldn't wait. I read the 6 hours makes these just fabulous.
Preheat oven 350. Scoop tablespoon size balls onto baking sheet about an inch apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes. I baked 12 minutes. Cool on wire rack and enjoy!!!!
