In case you don't follow me on Instagram, last week I had a serious craving for Chocolate Chip Cookies. A nearly 24-hour craving. And, I finally caved at 10pm on a Tuesday night. When I realized that I was without pecans my go-to recipe was out. I quickly popped over to Joy the Baker and searched her CCC archives. All of which were impressive but the Dark Chocolate, Pistachio & Smoked Sea Salt really stood out to me. Not only because it called for sea salt, but, because it uses less flour than most recipes. Something I am always drawn to. Since I was fresh out of pistachios and my sea salt wasn't smoked --Portlander FAIL-- I decided to play with the recipe. Why didn't I just save some time and do this with my go-to recipe?? Because, I love that recipe and would never make it without toasted pecans.
Wait... M.... didn't you notice that Joy's recipe is just an adaptation of Deb's recipe?? The recipe you love and would never alter!! Yes, I noticed this AFTER I ate so many cookies. I think it is safe to say I have a cookie type.
And, that Joy and Deb are amazing!!!
I did make a few modifications. I increased the amount of chocolate. Took out the pistachios. Used standard sea salt. Less fancy with my baking instructions.
