The cookie dough comes together in less than 10 minutes. I was able to make 4 medium sized cookies, you could make them bigger or smaller to get less or more. The brown butter and the high ratio of brown sugar to white sugar gives these an irresistibly nutty/caramelized flavor. They end up with a perfect crisp exterior and a golden chewy inside. Only having 4 of them is a little bittersweet.

Here's my tutorial on How To Brown Butter.

No chilling of the dough required, and better yet-no waiting for butter to soften! The easiest cookies I've ever made.
