Sea salt and thyme chocolate chip cookies

For the past few years, I have really been enjoying the salty sweet combo. To me, it’s the perfect combination.
These cookies fit perfectly into that category. Plus, they have the added flavor of the thyme.

To make them, I mixed together the flour, baking soda, salt and thyme. I didn’t measure the thyme but just added until I felt it looked like enough.


Next, I combined the butter and sugar in my mixer. Then I added the vanilla and eggs. Finally, the flour mixture is added in three batches.


The last ingredient is the chocolate. I used chocolate chips instead of chunks.


Once the chocolate is folded in, the dough is ready to be scooped out onto the pan.

Before the cookies go into the oven, they are sprinkled with coarse sea salt.

11 minutes in the oven and you have some tasty cookies!



Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies with sea salt

When I saw the recipe for these cookies from ambitious kitchen , I knew I had to make them! They looked and sounded amazing. And simple.

I mixed my dry ingredients in one bowl and started mixing my peanut butter and butter in my mixer. 20140516-213455.jpg

I used natural peanut butter for this recipe.
Next came the sugar. Then I added the egg and yolk, vanilla, honey and I opted for the sour cream instead of the plain Greek yogurt, since it was what I had in my fridge.

After that, I mixed the dry ingredients and chocolate chips in and put the dough in the freezer for 20 minutes.

When I took it out, I rolled the dough into balls and lightly pressed down with a fork. I popped them into the oven for 12 minutes. I sprinkled them with sea salt once they were done and somehow a cookie ended up in my hand and then my mouth… YUM!


These cookies are delicious! They were a big hit and made about 28 cookies.
