This post, hands down, has to be one of my favorites. First of all, chocolate chip cookies. Who can resist? You know how they say, it’s impossible to be unhappy while eating ice cream? Same applies to cookies, don’t you think? Also, who is “they”?
Now, the key to this dough is to let it sit in the fridge for a day or two so the flavors can get to know each other. I know, I know, that sounds terrible. Why would I convince you to make cookie dough then not bake it immediately? Because you trust me, that’s why. If you let the dough sit overnight, the cookies are even better the next day. I don’t know why that is but it’s so true. The icing on the cake? There’s sea salt sprinkled on top.
I’ve never understood the whole sweet and salty combination; I used to be a non-believer. I’m pretty sure it was these chocolate chip cookies that convinced me to get into sweet and salty snacking. It’s not too much salt in the recipe but it’s just enough to intensify the chocolate flavor. Oh man, these are good.
Let’s make the best chocolate chip cookies EVER!
