Recipe: Salty & Sweet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn't love a good chocolate chip cookie?!  I know I certainly do, and I've always been a big fan of Nestle's Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I've been making them for as long as I remember and have the recipe memorized at this point.  Recently I've gotten brave enough to start making some changes to the recipe to really customize it to my taste.  I think that I've finally gotten down a recipe based on the Original Toll House one that I really love and decided to take it up a notch this week.  I always see Emily Schuman from Cupcakes and Cashmere add sea salt to her chocolate chip cookies when she bakes them on her Snapchat and have been dying to try this myself!  A few days ago I decided to go for it and could not be happier that I did.  Adding salt puts a fun spin on a classic and gives it a delicious salty and sweet taste that I love.  Below is my recipe for chocolate chip cookies with sea salt that you and everyone you share them with (if you want to share!) are sure to love too!

2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/4 sticks butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Sea Salt

-Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, set aside.
-Beat butter and sugars in a bowl until fluffy.
-Add eggs and vanilla to butter mixture, beat until fully incorporated.
-Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mixing while you add it, mix until fully combined.
-Stir in chocolate chips.
-Drop cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet and sprinkle a pinch of sea salt onto each cookie.
-Bake for nine to eleven minutes or until golden brown.
-Remove from cookie sheet and allow to cool.

What do you think of this fun take on a traditional favorite?
