Friday Feet!

I enjoy seeing her beautiful pictures and the creatively healthy recipes she posts. Here is her not-so-healthy but decidedly DELICIOUS recipe for Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Pizookies!

I love browned butter.

Please tell me you've tried it??

I really think it might be one of my favorite flavors....


I love it so much, I'm always trying to sneak it into recipes....and I thought,

"why not a cookie?"

But then I remembered that we had vanilla bean ice cream, so I thought,

"why not a pizookie?"

Do you like hearing these conversations I have in my head?

enough chit chat.

let's get on with the recipe, shall we?

makes 6-8 pizookies

1 1/2c flour
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
3/4 c brown sugar
1 stick butter, browned
1 egg
1 t vanilla (I used mexican vanilla in these...yum!)
3/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
chopped pecans

Mix flour, soda and salt. Set aside

To brown butter:
Heat pan on medium heat.
Cut butter in to pieces and melt in pan.
Stir continuously. Butter will foam up.
After foam subsides, small brown flecks will start to appear in bottom of pan.
Continue stirring, until butter has reached a nice brown color, and nutty aroma.
When you want to lick the spoon, you know it's ready.
Remove from heat--don't burn it!!

Add browned butter and sugar to stand mixer. Mix. (you will want to eat this up!)
Mix in egg and vanilla.
Slowly mix in flour mixture.
Mix in chocolate chips.

Scoop dough into individual ramekins. Sprinkle some pecans on top (they get all toasty in the oven!)

Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes....remember you want the edges set, and the center nice and gooey!

Top with your favorite vanilla ice cream.....and enjoy!

  1. J...just the name "Pizookies" makes me want to try and make these extra fun cookies...and in ramekins. I have one ramekin. Guess I better be on the look out for a few more and give this recipe a try. Oh..and loved the Friday Feet pictures. The one with the checkerboard shoes made me think of Kristen. I have her black and white checkboard shoes sitting on her shoe shelf in the laundry room....worn out, holes and all. xoxox
