About a month ago I made these salted caramel chocolate chip cookies and they were AMAZING. Everyone loved the salty/sweet combination and so I decided to try out this recipe. The dark chocolate chunks and sea salt were to die for! Maybe my favorite cookie ever!
Here's What You'll Need:
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
-1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 2 large egg yolks
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 8 oz semisweet or bittersweet chocolate; chopped
- sea salt
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Step 2: Whisk flour, baking powder, kosher salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Set it aside.
Step 3: Using an electric mixer (medium speed), beat butter, brown sugar and powdered sugar together.
Step 5: Coarsely chop the chocolate and save it for later (yes, eat a few pieces of it for good measure ASAP).
Step 6: With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet; mixing only until blended.
Step 7: Fold the chocolate into the dough using a spatula.
The dough is just as tasty as it looks. Promise.
Step 8: Drop the dough by rounded tablespoon onto your baking sheet. The original recipe calls for parchment paper, but I use these cookie sheets and never find the paper necessary.
Step 9: Sprinkle the cookies with sea salt.
This is where a cute helper comes in handy :)
Step 10: Bake the cookies at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes and then cool on a wire rack.
The original recipe calls for you to put the racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and rotate the two trays halfway through baking. Next time I make them I'll skip this step and will just put them on the center racks... I felt like the batch that was on the top rack for the second half of the time ended up being a little crispier than I would have liked.
Done and DONE!
Y'all. These were so good. The perfect sweet/salty combination and the dark chocolate chunks were over the top yum.
