Caputo's Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups butter 2 1/2 sticks of butter

  • 1 1/3 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 3/4 cups cake flour
  • 1 3/4 cups bread flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 16 ounces high quality craft chocolate
  • fleur de sel

Method

In a large bowl beat together butter, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Beat together for 5-10 minutes or until the batter turns a very pale light brown. Scrape the sides and bottom with a rubber spatula to make sure ingredients are fully combined.

In a separate bowl mix eggs and vanilla together. Slowly pour and incorporate into the sugar mixture until barely mixed in. Scrape down sides of bowl.

Mix in both flours, until barely mixed in. Do not over mix.

Mix in chocolate until fully incorporated but do not over mix.

Scoop into .25 lb. balls and place on a parchment lined tray.

Refrigerate cookies for 6-7 days, which results in a better texture when you bake the cookie, and better flavor. If you cannot refrigerate for 6-7 days, refrigerate for an hour minimum. Preheat oven to 350 degrees before baking.

Place 4-5 cookies on standard cookie sheet. Bake cookies in the oven for 9 minutes then rotate and bake for another 8 minutes, or when tops of cookies are golden brown.

Remove cookies from oven and immediately top with fleur de sel sea salt.

Let cool for 5-10 minutes before eating. Cookies may be enjoyed warm, or wrapped and served later.
