Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies...

Ever since I had a rock salt chocolate covered caramel from Fran's, I was hooked on this combo, sweet & salty. I found this recipe and had to share. Delish.

Preheat the oven to 375.
Grease or line 2 cookie sheets.
Whisk together: 1 cup plus 3 Tbs all-purpose flour1/2 tsp baking soda
Beat in a large bowl until well-blended: 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened1/2 cup sugar1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
Add and beat until well combined:1 large organic egg1/4 tsp fine salt + 1/4 tsp fancy sea salt1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Stir in the flour mixture until well-blended and smooth. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips.Drop the dough by heaping teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets and sprinkle a few course sea salt crystals on top. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, until the cookies are just slightly golden on top and the edges are brown, about 8 - 10 minutes. Let stand briefly, then remove to a rack to cool. {Recipe via Lily at bigBANG Studio found via La Petite Choue}
