I am partnering with OXO today in support of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer to inspire others to Be A Good Cookie and host their own bake sales – preferably with these perfect cookies!

This recipe is courtesy of Dan Kluger, the chef/owner of Loring Place in NYC. He’s one of several chefs who have teamed up with OXO to raise awareness for the Cookies for Kids’ Cancer program.

If you’re not familiar, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer (CFKC) raises funds for research to develop new & improved treatments for pediatric cancer.

For each blogger that helps spread the word, OXO will be donating $100 (up to their $100,000 post commitment) so I am happy to particpate.

YOU can join in and help raise money for this amazing cause by hosting your own bake sale or event in your neighborhood. Register your event with CFKC and they’ll help you make it a success.

I previously have done cookie exchanges to benefit CFKC – including these Crisp Chocolate Crinkle Cookies and these Oatmeal Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Today, I’m excited to share these Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies. They might be my new favorite (do I say that every time I try a new cookie recipe…?)

If you’ve never tried adding a sprinkle of sea salt to your chocolate chip cookies, you’ve been missing out. The saltiness perfectly balances the rich dark chocolate in these cookies. They are thick and chewy and I was sad when we finished them off.

WHAT ARE CHOCOLATE FEVES?

Chocolate feves are larger chocolate disks than traditional chocolate chips. They make for great layers of chocolate in a cookie and the majority of the time, they’re made with higher quality chocolate than standard chips. I picked up the 64% feves I used in this batch at Whole Foods.

TOOLS FOUND ON AMAZON TO HELP YOU MAKE THESE COOKIES

  • Non-Stick Pro Half Sheet Jelly Roll Pan – I LOVE this pan. It has a micro-textured pattern that not only looks and feels luxe, it also improves airflow and allows for more even baking. The lip also comes in handy for so many things.
  • Silicone Baking Mat – If you’re not already baking with silicone baking mats, you need to start. They cut down on clean-up and waste and I swear my cookies turn out prettier every time I use them.
  • Small Cookie Scoop – I have cookie scoops in all sizes but this one by OXO is made really well and can withstand a lot of cookie scooping (believe me, I’ve scooped a lot and broken inferior brand scoops).
  • 11″ Balloon Whisk – I like to whisk together my dry ingredients before incorporating them into the wet ingredients.

TIPS FOR MAKING THE PERFECT SALTED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

  • Use room temperature butter and eggs.
  • Chill your cookie dough after you mix it up for at least 30 minutes. This helps the butter solidify and prevents your cookies from spreading too much.
  • As you scoop the cookie dough, I like to use a trick I learned from Sally’s Baking Addiction – make the balls taller rather than wider which leads to a thicker cookie.
  • Use Maldon Sea Salt Flakes – which are larger, pyramid shaped flakes – to top your cookies. They are the perfect compliment to the chocolate feves.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup butter at room temperatur
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups chocolate feves
  • Maldon salt for finishing

Instructions
 

  • Line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat and set aside.
  • To a large mixing bowl, add the butter and sugars. Cream with a hand mixer until combined.
  • Add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition until smooth.
  • Add in the vanilla, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add in the flour (I like to add it in 3 parts) and mix until just combined.
  • Add in the chocolates and stir to evenly distribute them.
  • COVER & REFRIGERATE DOUGH FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Once chilled, use a cookie scoop to portion out approximately 2 Tablespoon balls of dough. I like to roll the balls to be taller than wide (see photo) for even baking.
  • Sprinkle the cookie dough balls with a pinch of Maldon salt.
  • Bake for 7-8 minutes, depending on your oven. The cookies should be golden brown at the edges and puffy in the center.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for approximately 5 minutes before removing from the pan to cool completely.

    These cookies were absolutely delicious! I love a chewy cookie with lots of gooey chocolate. And I love a salty sweet combo of foods so of course this cookie had to be right up my alley…..right?! I mean that chocolate chewy sweetness and that little salty bite on top is absolute heaven! The recipe came together quickly. I will be making these again and again. Lol
