  • First, you need to brown the butter in a light colored pot so you can tell if it is brown.
  • Heat the 2 sticks of butter on medium whisking as you go. You want to heat until there are brown bits in the butter.
  • Once the butter is browned with a nutty aroma, set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  • Pour browned butter into stand mixer mixing bowl with brown sugar and  sugar mixing on low until smooth.
  • Add the eggs one at a time to this mix, mixing after each egg.
  • Add the vanilla extract after the eggs are mixed in and beat for another few minutes.
  • Pour in the flour mixture 1/4 a time mixing after each flour pour.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Stir by hand in 1 cup chocolate chunks, 1 cup colored chocolate chips and 1 cup chopped pecans.
  • Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Spoon out a teaspoon of the cookie mixture onto the cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. If you want flatter cookies, flatten them out a little now.
  • Bake at 350°F for about 14 minutes and let cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes.
