Kirstin: I love the full title of this recipe; Salted butter and chocolate chunk shortbread, or why would I make another chocolate chip cookie ever again? I’m no huge connoisseur of chocolate chip cookies. I’ve made them in my time, but we’re not big on desserts in our family. I usually leave the cakes and the like from the cookbooks on this site for Maureen. She’s the baker.
I’m so glad I decided to give these a go. There are a couple of extra steps which makes these exceptional; rolling the outside with sugar to make them cronchy. And also sprinkling them with salt (and using salted butter to make the dough). All of these go together to make an incredibly moreish cookie. Her last line says it all…”let cool slightly before eating them all”. And with that we celebrated Father’s Day and a friend’s son’s european roller hockey win.
