I recently purchased a shirt that accurately describes how I have been feeling over the last couple of months. It says, "Sorry I'm Late, I didn't want to come". It's not so much the late part as I strongly believe in punctuality, but rather the " I didn't want to come" that kind of sums up how I have been feeling lately.

I haven't really wanted to do anything that didn't require sleeping or binge watching Game of Thrones alone on my couch. I don't know if it was the looming one year anniversary of my mom's passing, but I don't think it's a coincidence that me feeling so awful lined up with this timeline.

But now that the one year mark has passed, and I have made it through (almost) all of the "first time without my mom" milestones, I am trying to find ways to feel better.  I know she wouldn't want me to staying home alone all the time - although I do think she would enjoy a good Game of Thrones binge watching session.

One thing that always helps is baking. I have made these cookies a lot over the last couple of months because I usually already have all the ingredients in my pantry (no need to go to the store and see other humans) and they are really really good. Nothing quite fixes a bad day like a warm delicious chocolate chip cookie. So if you are having a rough time, or you just need a freaking delicious cookie, try these guys!

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies

  • 2 1/2 cups flour (320g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda (7g)
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar (7g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (2.5g)
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, browned (227g)
  • 1  cups brown sugar (220g)
  • 3/4 cup sugar (150g)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium saucepan, cook butter over medium heat while whisking constantly. The butter will begin to foam, and eventually start to turn brown at the bottom of the pan.
  3. Once the butter begins to brown, transfer immediately to a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Add sugars and mix until combined.
  5. Add egg, egg yolks, greek yogurt and vanilla extract.
  6. Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  7. Stir in chocolate chips and toffee pieces. (*TIP - Set some chips/toffee pieces aside to put on top of each cookie after they come out of the oven)
  8. Use a medium ice cream scoop to scoop out cookies and place them in the fridge for at least one hour.
  9. Place on baking sheet, 2 inches apart, and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies begin to turn golden brown.
  10. Take cookies out transfer to wire rack to cool. 

*Makes about 24 cookies.
