I have a love for sweet and salty, ANYTHING. It was just natural to combine my Mommy’s recipe (with just a few changes of my own) for these Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies. I found this quality flake salt from Falksalt at my local Harris Teeter…it was the perfect touch! Of course…you can just bake up these dreamy cookies without it, buy WHY? Keys to making these cookie fabulous, is the incorporation of a packet of vanilla instant pudding mix and cake flour…pure perfection. This recipe will make 30 cookies.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flours, salt and baking soda. Set aside. NOTE: I love using the combine of AP flour and cake flour in most of my baking recipes. The cake flour always lends a “lightness” to the finished product. This cake from King Arthur is my go-to!

In a large bowl, combine the sugars and butter. Mix with a stand or hand mixer, on high, until nice and creamy…about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the pudding mix, vanilla and eggs. Mix well for another 3 to 4 minutes.

Slowly, mix in the flour mixture until all is combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.

Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, place cookie dough on pan…leave enough room for them to spread while baking. Top each with a few flakes of the salt. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, turning the pan once during baking. Remove pan from oven and allow the cookies to cool on pan for a minute or so. Transfer to cooling rack. ENJOY these fabulous Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies.

That just got me thinking. I could also see using this salt on my Fudge Brownies! I will definitely try this next go round.

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
