|Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie by The Salty Spoon|
Along with several other food bloggers, Bria of The Salty Spoon brought tasty, homemade treats for the rest of the forum attendees. I will admit now that I took several of her cookies to hoard for myself. My favorite sweet treat, above all else -- above cakes, pies, even cupcakes -- is a warm, slightly chewy chocolate chip cookie that isn't too sweet and sans nuts. I didn't know that what I was really seeking was Bria's salted chocolate chip cookie (and a month later, Momofuku Milk Bar's Compost Cookie)!
The little sprinkle of grey salt on top was the veritable icing on the cake with this cookie. It added the perfect contrast and depth of flavor, elevating it far above the ordinary chocolate chip cookie. I pestered Bria over the months for her recipe, and now it is available to all of us on her blog.
