Salty Chocolate Chunk Cookies

January 16, 2017

~The Ultimate Sweet and Salty Snack!

If you love a taste of something sweet and salty in the same bite, then you will want to make these cookies.  We received rave reviews from those who sampled them.  Kevin’s version of this recipe comes from bon appétit, Jan. 2013, ed. 

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

3/4 c. packed light brown sugar

1/2 c. sugar

1/4 c. powdered sugar

2 large egg yolks

1 large egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

8 oz. semisweet or bittersweet chocolate (do not exceed 72% cacao), coarsely chopped

flaky sea salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Whisk flour, baking powder, kosher salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl; set aside.  Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, brown sugar, sugar, and powdered sugar until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes.  Add egg yolks, egg, and vanilla.  Beat, occasionally scraping down the sides until mixture is pale and fluffy, 4-5 minutes.  Reduce mixer speed to low; slowly add dry ingredients, mixing just to blend.  Using a spatula, fold in chocolate.  Spoon rounded tablespoonfuls of cookie dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing about 1″ apart.  Sprinkle cookies with sea salt.  Bake cookies, rotating sheet halfway through.  Bake about 10 minutes total (the cookies will firm us as they cool).  Let cool slightly on baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks.  Repeat until all dough is baked.  Let cool completely.
