Today, I baked Bon Appetits BEST chocolate chip cookies 

For this recipe, I used a combination of chips and chopped chocolate

What makes this recipe different is the browning of the butter, which we have done at butter bear shop since we began, use of a whole egg and two yolks and notably the higher baking oven temperature of 375 Degrees F.

This recipe also calls for chopped chocolate, which I love! Once baked it gives the melty pools of chocolate on the top of your cookie!
