Tuesday Tasties: Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

A unique twist on an ol' favorite.

Ingredients
1½ cup brown sugar (for moist, soft cookies)
½ cup white sugar (yeah, not very healthy but they're cookies for Pete's sake!)
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
2 eggs, room temperature
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
1½ tsp. baking powder
2¾ cup all-purpose flour
1½ tsp. small course sea salt + extra for garnish
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat your oven to 360° F. Then place your softened butter and your two types of sugar in a large mixing bowl.
2. Now cream your butter and sugar! I used a fork to do this but feel free to use a mixer if you have one. Beat on medium-high speed if you're using a mixer until fairly white and creamly looking. Same goes for the fork process.
3. It'll look like this. Looks yummy right? I mean it should—it's butter and sugar.
4. Now add your eggs and vanilla extract and beat until fully incorporated.
5. And now add your dry ingredients! I suggest sifting the sea salt, baking soda, baking powder, and flour before adding to the wet mix. Mix well.
6. The base for your cookie dough is ready!
7. Add your chocolate chips. Of course you can feel free to experiment and be creative here.
 8. Mix the chocolate chips evenly through the dough, that way everybody will get roughly the same number of chocolate chips. No fighting please!
9. I made tablespoon sized cookies but you can make the smaller or bigger, whatever your heart desires! Just leave about an inch space at least between each cookie and the sides of your pan. Then top your cookies with a dash more of sea salt. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
And there you have it! Your cookies are done. The savoriness of the salt complements the sweetness of the cookies so nicely your guests won't be able to resist having just one.

Enjoy!
