These cookies went really fast at the first communion party. So fast that they had to be put away so there would be some left for dessert!
My favorite thing about this recipe: coarse sea salt. What a revelation! Pair the chocolate-toffee classic cookie flavor with a surprise burst of saltiness and you have found heaven!
2 sticks softened salted butter
½ cup sugar
1 ½ cups packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 ¾ cups all purpose flour
¾ teaspoon medium coarse sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
2 ¼ cups assorted baking chips (I used white chips, milk and dark chocolate chips)
1. Preheat oven to 360˚ F. Cream butter and both sugars until fluffy- about 3 minutes in the KitchenAid. Add both eggs and vanilla and beat an additional 2 minutes.
2. Add baking powder, soda, salt and flour until batter is fully incorporated. Finally, add the chips until well distributed. (At this point I was extremely grateful for the KitchenAid, this is a thick dough!)
