ingredients to make chocolate chip cookie-filled croissants
Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Step 2

Add cubed butter to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until butter melts and becomes foamy. Once the foam dies down slightly and the butter starts to smell nutty, remove the pan from the heat and pour it into a bowl to cool.

Step 3

Once cooled, pour brown butter into a large bowl. Whisk granulated and brown sugar into the butter. Crack and whisk in the egg followed by the vanilla extract.

Step 4

Add flour, baking soda and salt to the dough mixture. Use a spatula to fold in the dry ingredients until just combined. Gently mix in the chocolate chips. Set aside.

Step 5

Slice croissants in half lengthwise and place them on the lined baking sheet. Use a small cookie scoop (or two spoons) to dollop 2 heaping tablespoons of cookie dough onto the bottom half of each croissant. Use an offset spatula (or the back of a spoon) to spread out the dough. Close up the croissants.
