Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am in love with these cookies.

I want to write schmoopy love songs about them.  Compose sonnets.  Get on my rooftop and shout its beauty, because that is what these cookies are.  They are a thing of beauty.  And deliciousness.

Did I mention they're delicious?

Imagine your run of the mill chocolate chip cookie.  Now, add a deep and rich caramel flavor and the delectable bite of sea salt.

 Imagine yourself with an entire plate.  And some milk.  And maybe George Clooney.

Oh yeah, these cookies are the real deal.

Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups dark brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 sticks butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together the flour and baking soda in a bowl.  Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugar.  Add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each is mixed in.  Add the vanilla.  Mix in the flour mixture in two batches.  Fold in the chocolate chips.

Scoop the dough onto a prepared cookie sheet.  Sprinkle each dough ball with sea salt.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.

  1. Mhmm! These cookies look awesome.. I want one right now! :)

  2. I LOVE the combo of salty and sweet- these look wonderful!

  3. How does the sea salt affect the flavor? I hardly ever have any on hand..

    1. It really just adds a nice contrast to the sweetness of the cookie. You could probably use regular salt on top, but I prefer the coarse texture of the sea salt.

  4. Sea salt plus chocolate/caramel is seriously the best combo ever!! This recipe looks DELISH.

  5. These sound amazing! Especially your description of them. :)

  6. My sister and I love the word schmoopy! And I love these cookies :) Sea salt makes everything wonderful!
