It has been a while since cookies have been baked in my house, I think they were getting ready to revolt! My Braughler boys love their cookies so to fill their love tanks a little on this HOT summer day, I decided to turn on the air and bake up some good old chocolate chip cookies. I mixed them up, scooped them out, and that's when I saw it.... the course sea salt that sits by my oven for cooking. I had recently had some dark chocolate with sea salt and fell in love, so I grabbed that salt and sprinkled it on 3 of the cookies to test it. I may never go back! This cookie is a wonderful combination of the classic cookie we all love but with this new theme of salted desserts that are coming about. So if you have some course sea salt then have at it and if you don't, immediately go to your local grocery store and buy some! It's not just for savory anymore!
