Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was reading a blog that a follow and the headline said, “(Seriously) the best chocolate chip cookies ever,” so obviously I had to give them a try.  They did turn out amazing, Dan even said they are some of the best ever.  I will warn you they are somewhat more crunchy than I usually go for in a chocolate chip cookie, but the salty and sweet with lots of vanilla in the batter makes them oooo so good.  I suggest you give them a try.


Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

recipe from Camille Styles


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup (packed) light brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2 large egg yolks

1 large egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Sea salt


Preheat to 375° and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, kosher salt, and baking soda; set aside.

Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, brown sugar,  and sugar until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes. Add egg yolks, egg, and vanilla. Beat, occasionally scraping down the sides of the bowl, until mixture is pale and fluffy. Reduce mixer speed to low; slowly add dry ingredients, mixing just to blend. Fold in chocolate.

Spoon rounded tablespoonfuls of cookie dough onto baking sheets,and sprinkle cookies with sea salt.

Bake cookies until just golden brown around the edges, about 10-12 minutes. Let cool slightly on baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks; let cool completely.
