Ingredients (yields 2 dozen cookies)
- 1 cup flour (I used 100% white whole wheat flour.. it’s from Trader Joe’s, and my recipe is based off of the one on the side of the bag)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup butter (of course at room temperature… I usually cube mine first, too)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- sea salt
Preheat the oven to 375°
Sift the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon into a medium bowl, set aside. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or a hand mixer and big bowl, combine butter and sugars until smooth. Add egg and vanilla to your butter/sugar mixture.
Slowly add in your dry mixture. Fold or mix in chocolate chips. Go ahead, taste some cookie dough.
Stop eating raw cookie dough. Scoop rounded tablespoons of the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I usually use ice cream scoops to make cookies. Slightly smoosh the balls of cookie dough with the palm of your hand. Sprinkle pinches of sea salt onto each cookie (to taste).
Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. If you forget you put a second batch in the oven, and your oven is like mine, and the heat is significantly different on different racks, you’ll have some perfectly soft cookies (my favorite) and some equally delicious cookies with a nice crunch.
