Plain Greek Yogurt: If you don’t have any on hand, plain sour cream or a neutral tasting oil will work.

Chocolate Chips: I prefer dark chocolate chips in our desserts. However, regular semi-sweet taste just as good in these.

Recipe Notes:

  • Don’t forget to refrigerate the dough after mixing. You will need to do this for about 2 hours. You can refrigerate the dough longer, if you desire. However, you may need to let the dough come to room temperature before using.
  • It’s also important to let the cookies sit and cool on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes before removing them. This helps firm up the cookies and they do continue to cook just a smidgen. You can also avoid mushy cookies with this step.
  • Browned Butter? Yes. It’s a process of melting butter and will give any recipes a lovely nutty flavor. You will need to use real butter for this process. Margarine may burn. You can check out more detailed instructions on how to brown your butter in this post.
