Chocolate Chip Coconut Brown Butter Cookies

 I’m on something of a brown butter kick at the moment.  It is a really tasty kick, if I don’t mind saying.

After the Chocolate Spice Cake with Brown Butter Frosting I was looking for another way to use brown butter in sweets.  I decided on cookies, since they are my favorite thing to eat, and I decided to use some coconut because I had some in the pantry.  Really, these cookies were created simply by looking in my pantry and picking out things I needed to use up!

These cookies are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside.  The dual textures is created partly from the brown butter and partly from the coconut.  There is a lovely nuttiness to these cookies, but it is not overpowering.  All the flavors are subtle and combine to make a very tasty cookie.

In the bowl of a mixer combine the brown butter and sugars until well mixed.  The mixture will be slightly dry.  Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.

Scoop the dough by tablespoons (I used a #09 disher) onto the parchment line pans.  Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden.  Cool on the pan for two minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
