Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are good. Very good. I thought the original recipe-poster was exaggerating  when she said these cookies had changed her from cookie-apathy (*cue my incredulous face*) to cookie adoration. But in fact I think these would take anyone’s cookie appreciation to a whole new level. Unfortunately, they look pretty much exactly the same as the last batch about which I blogged due to the fabled cupcake baker, but they taste very much better!

Made 20-odd, but they’re quite small.

150g unsalted butter, softened

250g light brown sugar

1 egg

225g plain flour

200g dark chocolate

3/4 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  1. Cream butter and sugar with whisks or elbow-grease. Add egg and mix until well combined.
  2. Separately, mix the dry ingredients minus the chocolate.
  3. Fold butter mixture into the flour until only just combined.
  4. Chop chocolate into chunks and add to the dough. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes-72 hours.
  5. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 180C (350F). Line 2 baking sheets or trays with baking paper.
  6. Scoop 1/3cup balls of dough and place on the prepared trays. Allowing room for them to spread. Sprinkle liberally with sea salt flakes.
  7. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until cookies are golden. Cool on the tray.
