Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies
These dreamy Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Dan Kluger, chef and owner of Loring Place, New York City, are the best I've ever made. The recipe is so simple. It may become your new go-to.
dark brown sugar
pure vanilla extract
all purpose flour
milk chocolate chips
4 - 6
bar of dark chocolate
Maldon salt or coarse sea salt for finishing
In a large bowl, lightly cream the butter and sugar for just one minute. Do not incorporate too much air.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing just until smooth. Add the baking soda, salt and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
Add the flour and the chocolates. Mix just until combined. Avoid overmixing.
Refrigerate the dough for a half hour.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment.
Using a 1 ounce cookie scoop (2 tablespoon size), scoop the dough and drop them about 2 inches apart on your baking sheet. Sprinkle with a bit of Maldon or coarse sea salt.
Bake the cookies for 7 to 8 minutes or until the cookies turn golden brown at the edges.
