Triple Chip Brown Butter Cookies

I think…

we might have a cookie problem.

But.

That brings up a question.

Is a cookie problem actually a  real problem?

 

Cookies make me happy.

Make my house smell good.

Make my husband smile and tell me what a great cook I am.

Make new friends.

Make me eat more salads to balance out the butter and sugar.

Maybe…the cookies aren’t a problem after all.

Here’s one life lesson I’ve learned after lots and lots of batches of cookies:

People love homemade desserts, no matter what they are. But there’s something special about chocolate chip cookies.

They’ll always be welcomed, taken, hoarded, no matter what.

So brown some butter.

Throw in some chocolate chips.

Make cookies, make new friends, make someone’s day a little better with a lot of butter.

    Problem? What problem? I didn’t see a single argument in this post that made me think your abundance of cookies was a problem :D

    Oo my favorite cookie has three types of chips too! But I use peanut butter, white and semisweet chocolate. I should try putting in butterscotch!

    “cookie” and “problem” should never be used in the same sentence. No such thing!
