  2. Be careful when browning the butter, as it can quickly go from golden brown to burnt if not watched closely.
  3. Do not skip chilling the dough before baking, as this helps the cookies retain their shape and prevents spreading too much in the oven.
  4. Avoid overcrowding the baking sheet, as this can cause uneven baking and spreading of the cookies.
  5. Make sure to use high-quality chocolate chips for the best flavor and texture in the cookies.
