But then I saw this recipe for Nutella-Stuffed Brown Butter and Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies on Ambitious Kitchen (one of my fave food blogs), and I was like, "Whoa."
In this recipe, Monique turns the classic chocolate chip cookie on its head on so many levels. First, she encourages you to brown the butter to intensify the flavor. Okay, sure! Next, you add a tablespoon of Greek yogurt to the mix. I have never seen that ingredient in a cookie recipe before. Then, she calls for an insane amount of chocolate chips, plus a spoonful of chocolate hazelnut spread, and the entire cookie is sprinkled with sea salt. Whoa!
Even with the classics, sometimes it's good to mix it up. Whoa!
