I was looking for a recipe that made chocolate chip cookies in which the chocolate chips were melty and gooey and I found this recipe. They are the best cookies ever!! The secret is the sea salt-you have these delicious sweet, buttery cookies and every once in a while you get a hint of salt and it's an awesome contrast to the sweetness. **From Savory Sweet Life blog**
"Let's just say that these are sooo good that they replaced my son's all time favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe! The same one that he has loved since able to eat solid food. The same one he was always volunyeering me to make for school functions. The same one that we've had for 14 years!!! Yummy!!"- Hoch74

askiss21 14 hours agoSo I made this recipe once and the cookies turned perfect! Second time I made it, I realized the floir measurement on the recipe was conflicting. It 2 3/4 (12oz) cups flour. 12 oz is a 1 1/2 cups. Following the 12oz of flour I made the cookies and they turned out flat burnt on outside gooey in the middle. So I think the recipe calls for the actual 2and 3/4 cups flour not 12 oz.

mandys7 10 months agoThese cookies turned out so well. I used crisco instead of butter and added a little bit of cinnamon. They were so soft and moist in the inside and the edges had just enough'crisp' for the bite. My family loved them. Definitely going in my recipe book!
