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 chocolate chip cookies, with my love of salt. I found this quality flake salt from Falksalt at my local Harris Teeter…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.

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 and ENJOY!!!
