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 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.
