“This is the real recipe... I promise! I got it from a secret source and I would like to thank him/her for giving it to me. It's INCREDIBLE!! Crispy on the outside and chewy in the inside. To achieve this fantastic cookie, just follow the recipe accurately by measuring (not using the cups).Oh, and don't forget to review how your cookies went! PS:(Honest feedback so maybe I can improve it? haha...) How to soften butter. Cut the stick (or sticks) or butter lengthwise into halves. This will help the butter to soften quicker and evenly. Wait approximately 10 minutes (depending upon how hot your kitchen is). Then, with a finger, press gently on the butter. If it leaves an indent in the butter, the butter is soft enough to start whipping "creaming" it. How to brown butter Start melting butter over medium heat. Use a pan with a light-colored bottom so you can keep track of the color. Swirl the pan occasionally to be sure the butter is cooking evenly. As the butter melts, it will begin to foam. The color will progress from lemony-yellow to golden-tan to, finally, a toasty-brown. Once you smell that nutty aroma, take the pan off the heat and transfer the browned butter into a heat-proof bowl to cool.”
