  • 1/2 cup butter, melted over medium heat until a deep golden brown
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate, cut into chunks


  • In a large bowl, whisk browned butter with sugars until smooth. Gradually beat in egg and vanilla until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, combine cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, cornstarch, and flour. Fold flour mixture into liquid until a soft dough forms. Stir in chocolate chunks.
  • Divide dough into three portions. Form dough into 9 in long logs and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill dough at least 3 hours or preferably overnight.
  • Cut logs into 1/2-in thick discs and place 1-in apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake cookies at 350F 9-10 minutes until cookies are lightly browned around edges.
  • Cool cookies on baking sheet 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
