Here’s why these are the very BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies around.
Using butter two ways (browned and softened) helps create a chewy and crisp texture. Chewy on the outside and crisp around the edges.
Adding just a touch more than 2 cups of all-purpose flour helps maintain the not-totally-flat-and-frustrating quality of the cookie.
Brown sugar and an extra kick of molasses lend depth to the sweetness.
Dark chocolate and a touch of sea salt pair bitterness and salty tang to the sweet cookies.
They’re perfect because of brown butter, sea salt…
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

This is also just a great chocolate cake recipe. The cake is moist and delicious!
Makes 20 to 24 cupcakes
You can bake the cupcakes a week or two in advance and store them, well wrapped, in the freezer. You can also fill them before you freeze them. They also keep filled — or filled and frosted — in the fridge for a day. (Longer, they will start to get stale.)

“Sweet dark plums are wrapped in a potato dough, and boiled before rolling in sweetened toasted bread crumbs. My Austrian grandmother made these delicious dessert dumplings for us every fall. These take some time to make, but to me, they’re well worth the effort.”
