This past weekend was one of those weekends where I was just determined to cook everything. Way overly ambitious (you know that Saturday morning feeling), I had about 10 recipes in mind, but come Sunday night, I needed some ooey gooey cookies. Salty / sweet is my favorite dessert combination, and these Sea Salted Brown Sugar Cookies from the Cafe Sucre Farine delivered.
Full transparency, my cookies look much lighter than they are in the recipe as I used regular brown sugar instead of dark brown sugar (use what you have!). Other than that, I followed this recipe to the T. And let me tell you, when these come right out of the oven, and they’re still melty and you almost wonder if they’re a bit undercooked, they are the most amazing thing. Crisp on the outside, warm and melty on the inside; the perfect combination of sweet and salty. These really hit the mark!
I was recently asked what I do with all of the stuff that I cook / bake. 1) I eat it. 2) I give it away, and the easiest (and luckiest) bunch of people are my coworkers at the office! I brought some of these in earlier this week, and three days later I’m still getting shout outs (holla!) and requests for more. I do love eating what I bake, but as just the two of us, we don’t need to eat an entire batch of cookies / whole cake / full sheet of brownies, etc. (not to say that it doesn’t ever happen…. not judging!).
So my words of wisdom. Make these. And then get ready for everyone to ask you to make them again, and again and again 🙂 I’m actually sad I don’t have any left over and am not eating one as we speak….
This Jess ranking:
- Making it: 6/10 – very easy. I do admit to blowing up the butter in the microwave and making a colossal mess, but once we got past that point….
- Eating it: 10/10 – so good. Truly sinful.
- Looking at it: 9/10 – I think the cookies look better with the darker color (dark brown sugar), but that’s personal preference and these were still really beautiful.
