Rich, nutty flavored Chocolate Chip Cookies which are crisp on the outside whist being soft and chewy in the inside with gooey packets of melted chocolate chips.
Oh browned butter where art thou been all my life?? You know when you have been missing something yet don’t know what you have been missing until you find it. This is how i felt when browned butter came into my life. Brown or Browned butter is made when butter fat and milk separate and the milk from the butter sinks to the bottom of the pan and begins to brown creating this rich nutty flavoured butter.
Whilst basking in the happiness of my new found love brown butter, my daughter Esme regaled me with stories of the ducklings her class and her have been learning about. In class Esme has been learning about ducks and their habitats. Her class mates and her had the chance to watch ducklings hatch. The ducklings are named Fizzy Pop( Esme’s choice), Jazz , Lily Rose and Jumpy Jump. Every day i get regular updates of their progress, Jazz i’ve been told by Esme is very hyper. He follows their fingers and runs around the cage trying to find them. Well at the end of the week her homework from school was about the ducklings. It’s interesting the facts i picked up about ducks. Did you know wild ducks can live up to 20 years and domestic ducks up to 15 years. The Duckling beak has got an egg tooth which they use for pecking out of the egg. Interesting facts. I got the chance to meet them one morning when i dropped off Esme at school. I literally had to stop myself from taking one home, they are so cute. Friday is the duckings last day with Esme and her class so i’m going to go take some pictures of the cute little ducklings. I know she will certainly miss her duckling but at least she will have a photo keepsake of them. So two new discoveries this week, science lesson on ducklings and brown butter .
The nutty fragrance of browned butter is absolutely magnificent and adds a certain je ne sais quoi to the chocolate chip cookies. These brown butter cookies are absolutely irresistible.
I thought of setting a stall infront my house selling these brown butter chocolate chip cookies but after Esme and my friend Robert took a bite of these cookies i knew for sure i would not make a profit out of selling them. The will be no product to sell, Esme and Robert will eat it all that’s how good these cookies taste. Robert actually told me the cookies tasted better the second time he had them.
