Salted White Chocolate Chip Cookies are a delicious combination of salty and sweet flavors in a chewy cocoa butter chip cookie.
Salted White Chocolate Chip Cookies
I made these cookies just last weekend to take to a dinner party for dessert. Just as I was pulling them out of the oven I knew I’d stumbled upon one of the best cookie recipes. I’d initially set out to bake something extremely simple since I would also be baking my daughter’s “mermaid cake,” which I honestly didn’t know how I was going to pull off, later that evening so I was thrilled with how easy these cookies were to make.
Often when I’m bringing a dessert to an event I’ll opt for preparing a unique dish. I just didn’t have the energy this particular weekend. Not only are these cookies some of the best I’ve ever had, but they were so unbelievably easy to make. How’s that for a win?
I can already see how this will turn into multiple cookie recipe combinations. I’m already heating up the oven to make a chocolate chip version.
