Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

Did you ever have a friend that dipped their fries in a milkshake? They may have been gross for eating a milkshake but our taste buds go crazy for sweet and salty. Make the best chocolate chip cookies you'll ever have in a few easy steps and don't forget the salt!

2 sticks butter, softened (not melted)
1 cu brown sugar
1 cu white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 cu white flour
2 cu semi-sweet chocolate chips (don't skimp! use ghirardelli)

Thoroughly mix butter and sugar. Then add eggs, vanilla, salt and baking soda until combined. Add the chocolate chips and then flour. Spoon about 2 tablespoon-fulls of the batter 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 350 F just above the middle rack. Sprinkle with kosher salt once the cookies have "melted" into discs but before they are done so the salt sticks.

The keys to success are; letting the cookies finish "baking" while they cool outside the over and to remove them from the tray at let cool on a wire rack. The cookies are 'ready' to come out when they are still soft but have a firm enough bottom to be removed with a quick motion of a thin spatula.

Good luck!
