Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies


Chocolate Chunk Cookies with a sprinkle of flaked salt on top. I love the contrast but, if you prefer you can always make these without the salt.

You will need:
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup) room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp real vanilla (never use artificial it's made from wood!)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup all purpose flour plus 1 tbsp
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup chopped chocolate - dark chocolate or milk and dark
  • 1 tsp flaked sea salt for tops of cookies
1. In a bowl cream together butter and sugars. Mix until smooth.
2. Add egg and vanilla and mix well until incorporated.
3. In another bowl add flour, baking soda, baking powder and pinch of salt.
4. Chop chocolate or use chips if you prefer. I think the cookie tastes better with dark chocolate but, you decide what kind you like best.
5. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mix and mix with a spatula or wooden spoon until just blended.
6. Add chocolate and fold in until mixed throughout.
7. Place cookie dough in fridge 20 minutes to firm up.
8. Use a small ice cream scoop or 2 spoons to form individual cookies. Leave space for cookies to spread while baking. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and put back in fridge for another hour to firm up.
9. press down on each cookie slightly and sprinkle a few grains of salt on top (You can omit this if you don't want them salted.
10. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 12-14 minutes until just starting to brown around the edges. The cookies will appear under baked and that is fine. Let cool and eat!
