Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh my goodness, these cookies are so good! Be warned you need to chill the dough for 12 hours before you bake these. I ended up chilling the dough for two days since I didn’t have time to bake them and they turned out fantastic. This recipe is from the NY Times cooking section.


Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup & 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 lb butter
  • 1/2 cup sesame tahini
  • 1 -3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • sanding sugar & sea salt mixture for sprinkles on the top

Mix butter, sesame tahini, eggs, sugar and vanilla for five minutes until creamy. Sift dry ingredients together and add slowly to the creamed mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips. Chill the dough for 12 hours.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Form large balls with the dough and place on a baking sheet bake. I baked 8 on a sheet. Bake at 325 for 15 – 20 minutes until golden around the edges. When the cookies come out of the oven sprinkle them with a mixture of sanding sugar and sea salt. Yielded 24 cookies.
