Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

June 13 , 2014 by: Hong Food

Happy Friday! Here’s a little sweet and savory  treat to start your weekend!



Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c. unsalted butter, room temperature (2 sticks)
1 c. brown sugar, packed
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 3/4 c. flour
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. fine gray sea salt (plus more for garnish)
11 oz. good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In the bowl of a stand mixer, place the butter, brown sugar and white sugar.  Cream on medium high speed until light and fluffy (about 3-4 minutes).  Add the vanilla and then the eggs, one at a time.  Once mixed in, turn off the mixer and attend to the dry ingredients.

In a small mixing bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda and sea salt.  With the mixer on medium, slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar mixture until fully incorporated.  Add in the chocolate chips. Turn off mixer.

Roll one inch balls of cookie dough and place them a couple of inches apart.  Bake for 9 minutes sharp and then pull the cookie sheet out of the oven.  Allow the cookies to sit for a few minutes before using a spatula to place them on a wire rack to cool.  Sprinkle a little sea salt atop the cookies and allow them to continue cooling for an additional 5 minutes.

  • This recipe was simple and delicious! I made these for Father’s Day and my husband said they were the best chocolate chip cookies he had ever had.
    Just a side note- I don’t spend a whole lot of time in the kitchen so this was quite the compliment. I look forward to my next Seasons for Cake recipe!

  • Yay! So happy to see Seasons for Cake back in action! These pictures have me drooling. Looking forward to trying out these recipes.
