Seasalt Chocolate Chip Cookies ~ 海盐巧克力曲奇饼

 

These dreamy and heavenly chocolate chip cookies will make your kitchen smell like a bakery.  There is a divine contrast between sweet and salty for the slight pinch of seasalt flakes intensifies and brings out the chocolate flavour.  Freshly baked, these cookies are slightly soft in the centre and crispy at the edges, but if you do have leftovers, these will be crunchy, stored in a cookie jar, for a few days.
