These are a favourite amongst my friends. Maybe it's because they don't have my usual healthy twist on things, but whats life without a little treat, and sugar! But when it comes to choc chip cookies, they really don't get much better then this. Soft, chewy on the inside and crunchy on the out. The salt adds that savoury element to bite through the sweetness! 

Enjoy! And don't forget the tag #shelleysgoodeats on facebook and instagram so I can see your creations!

Salted Choc Chip Cookies

125g butter

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 caster sugar (or white sugar)

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 cup self-raising flour

3/4 cup plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup milk chocolate chips

2 tsp coarse himalayen salt

Method:

Preheat the oven to 160Β°C. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat (or in the microwave) and set aside to cool slightly. Pour butter into a large bowl and stir in brown sugar and caster sugar until smooth and sugar is mostly dissolved. Lightly beat the egg with a whisk or fork and stir into the sugar mixture along with the vanilla. Sift flours and baking powder together into a small bowl and then gradually mix into sugar mixture until combined. Stir through chocolate chips. Drop rounded tablespoons of the cookie mixture onto lined baking trays. Sprinkle cookies with salt and then bake for 12 minutes or until golden.  Then remove from oven and allow to cool on trays for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
