Weekend Baking: Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_0296

Chocolate chip cookies are everyone's favourite so they're the perfect treat to make on the weekend. They're comforting, warm and gooey, but these ones have a bit of a twist! They have sea salt on the tops. I'm a big fan of salty and sweet together in a dessert. These cookies will settle your cravings, and will leave you happy. You will need:

1 cup of softened butter

1 cup of brown sugar

1/2 cup of granulated sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp of vanilla extract

2 cups of all-purpose flour

1 tsp of baking soda

1/2 tsp of salt (plus more sea salt for topping)

2 cups of chocolate chips

To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until it becomes fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until it becomes creamy. In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix in into the wet ingredients gradually. Stir in the chocolate chips. (Its important to stir the chocolate chips in and now beat them because you want the chips to stay whole) I like to use a mini ice cream scooper to portion out the dough and then I roll them into balls. Top each ball with sea salt, and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Let them cool, and enjoy! chocolate chip dough ball2 chocolate chip dough ball1 salt chocolate chip cookies salt chocolate chip cookie
