Browned butter chocolate chip cookies
I've been eyeing this recipe since last year when I was browsing Cooking Light's magazine at the library .
I always got a good nah , great result when using any recipe from that magazine er except the cooking time of the two brownies that I baked last time but overall their recipe always deliver .
These cookies not only look good ( it does ? lol ) , they also tastes really awesome !
Yup ! Not exaggerating this time ( okay , maybe a 'lil bit ! ) but there's browned butter and get this , whole wheat flour ...
It's only 93 grams but still , the whole wheat flour adds a layer of what I called healthy goodness to the otherwise unhealthy but wonderfully yummy cookies ....
But then who am I to quibble ?
I love unhealthy but scrumptious goodies as the next person lol
