via Smitten Kitten

Recipe for 18-24 cookies

What you’ll need:

  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (think Sugar in the Raw)
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons packed light or brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Heaped 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt or table salt
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 pound semi or bittersweet chocolate – chips or flaked/cut up bar (use a serrated knife)
  • Flaky or course sea salt

What to do:

Preheat oven 350° F.

In a large bowl, cream the  butter and sugars together.

Beat in egg and vanilla.

Beat in the heaped 1/4 teaspoon of salt and baking soda

Beat in the flour. It should look a little crumbly at this point. If not, add a little bit of flour and mix again.

Fold in the chocolate with a spatula.

Make balls of cookies about 1 1/2 tablespoons in size.

Bake until you see hints of brown on the top (7-12 minutes).

Remove from the oven, let cool, and then smile.
