Ok- who else is in desperate need for a cookie. We just need something comforting, familiar, and delicious right now. Well… this might be the BEST EVER chocolate chip cookie you’ll ever make. No joke. It’s slightly chewy, perfectly sweet, finished with a pinch of flaky sea salt, and seriously delicious. This is an instant mood changer and just what we need right now.
2 cups + 2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons molasses
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Flaky sea salt
In a bowl with an electric mixer combine the sugar and molasses
Add in the butter and cream together until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes
Add in the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until combined
To the wet ingredients add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined
Add in the chocolate chips and mix to combine. Make sure you don’t overmix!
Put the dough into the fridge to chill for at least an hour
Once chilled, preheat your oven to 350
Take 1-2 tablespoons of the dough, roll them, and put on a parchment lined sheet tray. Make sure you leave enough space because they do spread quite a bit!
Put into the preheated oven and bake until slightly golden brown about 11-13 minutes
Once cooked sprinkled a little flaky sea salt to the top *optional but highly recommended*
Let cool slightly before eating!
