Sea Salt Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies 1(50)

source: adapted from Savory Sweet Life Chocolate Chip Cookie

Ingredients:

1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt + more for sprinkling, if desired
2 ¼ cups good quality milk chocolate, chopped

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 360°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2. Using a hand or stand mixer, cream the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together on medium-high speed for 3 minutes, until nice and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one ay a time, then add the vanilla, and mix for 2 minutes. Reduce the mixer speed to medium-low and add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. When the cookie dough has absorbed the dry ingredients, stir in the chocolate chips and mix until they are well distributed.

3. Drop 2 tablespoons of dough (or use a medium cookie scoop) onto the cookie sheet for each cookie, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges are nice and golden brown. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for 2 minutes. Then slide the parchment paper, with the cookies still on top, onto a wire rack to cool completely.
