I have been searching and searching for the best salted cookie recipe and I have created one. Hands down the best. It is chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I honestly could eat 6 in one sitting.
Do yourself a favour and make these as soon as possible.
The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Salted Cookies
3/4 cup granulated sugar (I used vanilla bean sugar)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
Flaked maldon sea salt
1. Heat oven to 375ºF.
2. Mix sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten them out a bit and sprinkle lightly with a few sea salt flakes.
4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Pace back and worth until they are cool. Mine took exactly 9 minutes to bake.
