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.

  • Spent the weekend at anchor in Liberty Bay. These types of weekends alway remind me of how little we really need in life; nourishment, warmth, love, and a little attention. Happy Earth Day.
  • One of the things I love most about travel is the the discovery of universal languages such as food and an appreciation for culture. Some cities of course are better hosts than others at this but the discovery is part of the magic. This concludes my travel posts but I’ve decided to resurrect my blog to post more photos and tips specifically about Lisbon since some of you have inquired. More to come! ❤️
  • Lisbon; lively and busy but time stand stills. Modern with lots of character and respectful of traditions. Do yourself a favor and book your next trip to Lisbon. .
