Chocolate chip cookies are a classic treat loved by many. They are perfect for any occasion, whether it's a cozy night in or a party with friends. This recipe is a twist on the traditional chocolate chip cookie, adding a touch of sea salt to bring out the sweetness of the chocolate.
I have been making chocolate chip cookies since I was a little girl. My mom would always let me help her mix the ingredients and place the dough on the baking sheet. It was a tradition we shared every Sunday evening and still do to this day. This recipe has become a favorite in our family, and I love sharing it with others.
