Whew, I spent the last few weeks moving all of our stuff to our new home. Despite our place looking like an absolute war zone for a few days, our new house (!) looks absolutely fantastic, and of course, I had to christen the oven (and the new place) with some baked goods and baked good smells.
Look how pretty! I realized that I don’t think that I’ve ever posted just a plain chocolate chip cookie recipe on here before. There has been chocolate chip cookies stuffed with nutella, but never just a chocolate chip recipe. Also, one of my favorite bloggers posted a picture of some salty cookies and I was inspired so into our new kitchen I went!
Salty and sweet, these made great welcome home cookies!
Fleur de Sel Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Adapted from Nestle Toll House
Makes about 24 cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 oz Semi-Sweet chocolate chunks
about 1 tablespoon fleur de sel for sprinkling
Preheat your oven to 375F.
In a large bowl, mix together your flour, baking soda, and salt.
In another bowl, cream together your butters and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in your vanilla and one egg at a time. Slowly incorporate in your flour mixture. Once incorporated, fold in your chocolate chunks.
Take ~ 2 tablespoons worth of dough (for bigger cookies!) and place about 1 inch apart on a baking sheet. Flatten the dough slightly and sprinkle on fleur de sel before baking.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are just slightly golden brown. If they look very doughy coming out, you can always let them cool on the hot baking sheet – ensuring last minute cooking and forever soft cookies!
