Rosemary chocolate browened butter cookies
For a few months I had a desire to try this combination of flavors. My expectations were high and I was really excited while making this cookies. They turned out ok, but for me, it wasn’t the happiest combo. I decided to publish this recipe because it wasn’t bad and if someone wants to give it a try, here it is. Soft and chewy with a Mediterranean touch.
- 120 gr butter
- 200 gr flour
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 130 gr brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 100 gr dark chocolate (cut into small pieces) or chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp fresh rosemary (chopped)
Slice butter into small pieces, put it in the skillet and melt it over medium heat stirring frequently.
When butter melts, it will start to foam up a bit.
You have to stir constantly and when butter gets lightly brown and develops nutty aroma, remove from heat and pour into heatproof bowl.
Be careful not to burn butter. Let it cool for 30 minutes. Mix butter and sugar for 1 minute.
Add egg and mix for another minute. In another bowl combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. Add half of the dry ingredients, mix a little and add second half.
Mix until combined. Cut chocolate and chop rosemary.
Add them in the batter and stir with spatula.
Preheat oven to 175 degree C.
Put baking pan in a fridge while waiting for the oven to heat.
Bake for 9-10 minutes. The cookies will be still soft so don’t touch them until they cool, otherwise they will break down.
