1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, toasted
1/4 cup milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
You?ll need to toast the flour to make this dough safe for eating. Spread the flour on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees Funtil slightly darkened, 12 to 15 minutes. Gather the flour into a mound and insert a thermometer into the center; it should register at least 160 degrees F. If it doesn?t, spread out the flour and continue baking, rechecking the temperature every 3 to 5 minutes. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes.
