Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies


Saturday morning, I was reading the RSS feeds from the different blogs I follow, did a little clicking on some links within the posts, and came across this blog, Make It Naked.  I then spent the next hour or so reading every blog post in her blog, all the way to when it started.  As  I was reading, I saw this recipe and immediately saved it for my next sweet tooth attack...which happened Sunday!  After dinner on Sunday night, I started making these while Joel cleaned up our leftovers and did dishes.  The addition of the sea salt really makes these cookies stand out compared to other recipes I've tried!

1 1/4 cups Granulated Sugar
1 1/4 cups Brown Sugar
3 sticks Butter, softened
1 tablespoon Vanilla
2 Eggs
4 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
2 bags Chocolate Chips (12 ounces each)
Sea Salt, for topping

In a large bowl, mix the sugars, butter, egg, and vanilla by hand.  Add the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Mix in the chocolate chips then refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour.  (Oops, I forgot this step!!)  Scoop whatever size cookie you prefer onto a baking sheet and sprinkle with a tiny bit of sea salt.  Bake for 8-12 minutes, depending on the size of the cookie.  (I halved the recipe and made 74 mini cookies, scooping about 1/2 tablespoon of dough for each cookie)
