I don't have much to say about this one. Eating a homemade chocolate chip cookie right after it comes out of the oven is pretty sweet.
I made these for my friend Jen and I one Sunday when we were hanging around. They are my best batch yet :)
What you will need:
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside.
In an electric mixer (if you have one, otherwise just use a bowl) beat the softened butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until it is creamy.
Add the eggs one at a time and mix until incorporated.
In small batches beat in the flour mixture.
Stir the in the chocolate chips and drop approx. 1 tablespoon "balls" of dough on an ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle each cookie with a tiny bit of cracked sea salt.
**It sounds crazy but it changes the whole taste of the cookie for the better and brings out all of the flavors.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes until the cookies are golden brown.
Cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.
