Sea Salt Chocolate Chunk Cookies

If you’ve been on Instagram lately, you might’ve seen two viral chocolate chip cookie recipes. While I am late to the bandwagon and still haven’t tried either of the recipes, this cookie is inspired by both! (See Alison Roman’s Salted Butter and Chocolate Chunk Shortbread and Sarah Kieffer’s Pan-Banging Chocolate Chip Cookies).


I N G R E D I E N T S

  • 1/2 cup of butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup of brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 8 ounces of chopped semi-sweet chocolate

D I R E C T I O N S

  1. Preheat the oven to 350Β°F
  2. Whisk together the butter, sugars, and salt until a fully combined. The mixture should form a ribbon when lifting up the whisk.
  3. Whisk in the egg and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Sift the flour and baking soda into the wet mixture and fold (with a spatula) until just combined. Do not over-mix!
  5. Fold in the chopped chocolate, and chill the dough for 30 minutes.
  6. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out 13 cookies between two sheet pans. Bake for 13-15 minutes* until crisp on the edges and chewy in the centers.

*For the best flat/chewy/crisp texture, lift the sheet pan and quickly drop it down in the oven at around 8 minutes and 12 minutes.
