These chocolate chip cookies are destined to be a classic recipe in your files. They’re crisp at the edges, chewy at the center, and loaded with plenty of chocolate throughout. A sprinkle of coarse salt sets them apart.
Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies
Homemade chocolate chip cookies are one of those treats I rarely say no to. Whether I bake them myself or someone offers them up, they’re always an instant yes.
Especially when those chocolate chip cookies are freshly baked, nobody needs to ask twice. There is just something special about a still-warm, super chocolatey, chewy cookie that can’t beat. It’s even more phenomenal with just the right balance of sweetness and a little touch of salty sprinkled on top.
A touch of coarse salt
What makes this chocolate chip cookie outstanding is the simple yet smart little touch of coarse sea salt on top of the melty chocolate, which gives us that wonderful salty/sweet balance. Just a tiny pinch on top of each cookie makes a world of difference in flavor.
The use of brown sugar gives these chocolate chip cookies a rich molasses depth. The sugar levels in this recipe are adjusted to accommodate all the mouthwatering chocolate chunks that make these cookies so toothsome.
Freeze cookie dough or baked cookies
My main method of portion control is to bake up a small batch and freeze the rest of the raw cookie dough for later. Another thing I do is morph into that crazy baker who wraps up goodies for anyone who is willing to help prevent myself from indulging in three too many cookies per sitting.
Feel free to freeze either raw dough or baked cookies, both of which will provide you with wonderfully delicious chocolate chip cookies just when you need them.
