Sea salt and chocolate chips cookies

I recently re-discovered a recipe I used to be kind of addicted to.

Back when I was in my last year of High School, I developped an addiction to baking as a way to release stress. So much so that in the last few weeks before my exams, I baked up to 3 cakes a day. My brother and sister were really happy with this situation, my dad, not so much.

These cookies (or one of their variations) were amongst the usual suspects back then (together with this little wonder) and there wasn’t a week I wouldn’t bake at least one batch.

And then, God knows why, I stopped.

But last weekend, I was craving something sweet to have with a cup of my favourite Christmas tea (from Twinings) and all of a sudden, my favourite chocolate chips cookies were back!

Sea salt & chocolate chips cookies (makes about 15)

Ingredients: 125g soft butter (not melted!), 125g caster sugar, 175g self-raising flour, 1 egg, 20g almond flour, a good pinch of sea salt flakes (I used Maldon’s), 100g chocolate chips

1. Pre-heat the oven at 180°C.

2. Cream butter and sugars, once creamed, combine in the egg.

3. Sift in the flour, almond flour and a bit of the salt, the chocolate chips.

4. Roll into walnut size balls, place on ungreased baking paper and sprinkle with a few more sea salt flakes.

5. Bake for 8-12 minutes depending on how soft you like your cookies.

What’s your favourite kind of cookies? (Mine are those, and also white choc/sour cherries and coconut/sultanas!)
