2. Salty Sweet desserts
In regards to #2, my favourite cookies are these guys right here:
It’s a tried and true recipe that has never let me down in the ‘that’s a damn good cookie’ category.
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- kosher or flaked salt (for sprinkling)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using the paddle attachment of your mixer, combine butter and both sugars on a medium speed until it is light and fluffy (about a minute)
Reduce speed to low and add salt, vanilla and eggs. Beat until mixed thoroughly. Add flour, baking soda and oats. Mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips last.
Drop a generous tablespoon-sized ball of dough onto baking sheet about 2 inches apart (line sheet with parchment paper or use a silpat) Sparingly sprinkle tops of cookies with kosher salt/flaked salt
Bake for 8-10 minutes until edges are golden brown
Remove from oven and let sit for 2-3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack to let them cool completely.
Makes about 2 dozen
It’s hard to let them cool without having a taste, but its totally worth the wait when you get the salty-sweet goodness hitting your palate.
