One of my sons isn’t big on sweets. He’s not a fan of cookies with too much sugar (especially brown and raw sugars). So I used browned butter and browned milk powder and omited the turbinado and invert sugars I normally add to my chopped chocolate cookie.

While bakers in this article from 2008 used non-fat dried milk powder, I used full fat milk powder with great results. This is probably my best chopped chocolate cookie.

I cooked the butter on medium low heat until it started to show color. Then added the milk powder and whisked almost continuously until the mixture browned to med-light color. Cooling in the pan it continued to brown to the perfect browned butter color (color of a pecan shell). Using a lower temperature and whisking continuously are key to prevent burning and lumps.

I love ideas in food, genius-level innovations! I found out through trial and error that certain brands of milk powder are granular rather than a finely milled texture and are guaranteed to clump(at least for me!). Bob's red mill works well for me.

I haven’t tried Bob’s Red Mill milk powered. But I love some of their products like the tapioca flour and extra almond flour. IMO it is the best quality of finely grounded almond flour available in the grocery stores.
